Missing snowboarders located at Mount Rainier

SEATTLE – A national park spokeswoman says searchers have located two snowboarders who spent two nights on Mount Rainier after getting lost in a snowstorm.

Mount Rainier National Park’s Lee Snook said searchers are in contact with the two men and are making their way to them. She did not have other details, including their condition.

She said it could be a while before the snowboarders get off the mountain, depending on whether they can walk out on their own or need help.

The men – 21-year-old Derek Tyndall of Sumner, Colo., and 20-year-old Thomas Dale – were lost Sunday.

The Seattle News, which is covering the story live, has said that Dale is believed to be from Fort Wayne. This could not be independently confirmed.
