RENO, Nev. (AP) -- Authorities said they found two adults and four children who went missing in the frigid mountains of northern Nevada on Sunday.

Pershing County sheriff's officials say the adults and children were taken to Pershing General Hospital after crews found them Tuesday. All were in good condition.

Temperatures in the nearby town of Lovelock dipped to 16 degrees below during the search.

Crews launched a search Sunday night for 34-year-old James Glanton, his 25-year-old girlfriend, Christina McIntee, and the four children: a 10-year-old, two 4-year-olds and a 3-year-old.

Officials say the group went to the Seven Troughs area Sunday to play in the snow, but never returned home.
