VOYAGEUR'S NATIONAL PARK, Minn. (AP) - Two snowmobilers who went missing in a St. Louis County park have been found safe after they spent a frigid night in an unheated boathouse.
A Hibbing Daily Tribune report says the two Hibbing men were snowmobiling in Voyageur's National Park. They were expected to return home late Saturday. When they didn't show up, a rescue squad began searching for them Sunday about 3:30 a.m.
As officers were checking local resorts and hotels, the men made their way back to the Ash River Trail at 9:30 a.m.
They told authorities they got lost after getting disoriented in the blowing, drifting snow. They took refuge in the park's boathouse.
One man had sustained a minor back injury. Neither man required hospitalization.
The state Assembly has passed the state budget on a 55-42 vote. The vote came abruptly yesterday after Democrats surprisingly decided against offering any amendments. The budget now heads to the Senate for debate today.More >>
