Missing hunters located

Twenty members of Vernon Search and Rescue were called out at 9 a.m. Monday

Two missing hunters have been located safe and sound.

Twenty members of Vernon Search and Rescue were called out at 9 a.m. Monday to assist the RCMP in the search for two overdue hunters in the Beau Park area off of Westside Road.

The two men had gone hunting Sunday and had failed to return home as planned.

At noon Monday, the wife of one of the men received a text from her husband advising that they had got their vehicle stuck and waited until daylight to dig it out.

Once they managed to free the vehicle and as they were driving out of the bush into Westwold, they made contact as soon as they had cell service.
