Two missing snowmobilers were found alive shortly before noon today. The men were reported missing last night, after they failed to return from a snowmobiling trip to Langjökull glacier.
The men were found 11 kilometers from the glaicer, where they had left their sleds before walking to safety. Neither had any location equipment nor much experience on snowmobiles.
A rescue squad of about 300 people was sent to the Langjökull and Hallmundarhraun area last night, and they searched through the morning. Aiding in the discovery was the relatively good weather. Search parties came from the Western, Northern and Southern parts of Iceland.
