Snowy Range

Snowmobilers wait and watch each other climb a hill in 2015 near Mirror Lake in the Medicine Bow-Routt National Forest.

LARAMIE (AP) — Four missing snowmobile riders have been found safe in southern Wyoming.

The Albany County Sheriff's Department says a search helicopter spotted the four men from South Dakota on Tuesday afternoon and they all appeared to be in good condition.

The helicopter wasn't able to land in the rugged area of neighboring Carbon County and ground searchers weren't able to reach them by nightfall. The pilots dropped some supplies along with a note telling the men that help was on the way and asking them to remain there.

Searchers planned to rescue the group Wednesday.

The sheriff's department was notified that they were missing Sunday after they failed to check out of their lodge as planned.

The search area was very large because it wasn't known exactly where the group planned to go.
