Lost Colo. snowmobilers found OK

RAWLINS, Wyo. ” Three missing snowmobilers survived two nights in the Snowy Range of southern Wyoming before being found.

Carbon County Sheriff Jerry Colson said the three men were cold and hungry but otherwise OK after being found Monday afternoon.

The three were identified as Pernell Olson, 30, Jim Lawson, 40, and Cody Allen, 21. All are from the Denver area.

Colson said the three were reported missing Saturday night after failing to return to a cabin in Centennial, which is on the eastern edge of the Snowy Range.

Searchers were not able to find them Sunday but had some cell phone contact with the men.

They were eventually found by another group of snowmobilers along a trail about 2:30 p.m. Monday.
