LOVELOCK, Nev. (AP) -- Authorities say they've found two adults and four children who've been missing in the frigid mountains of northern Nevada since Sunday.

Pershing County sheriff's officials say the adults and children were being taken to Pershing General Hospital after they were found 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.

A search is on in the mountains of rural northwestern Nevada for a couple and four children who went to play in the snow Sunday and haven't returned.

Pershing County deputies say aircraft went back up at about 6:30 a.m. Monday to look 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. The relationship between the couple and children was unclear.

Officials say the group went to the Seven Troughs area at about noon Sunday in a 2005 Jeep.

Dispatcher Jerry Reid says a search and rescue operation started a little after 8 p.m. and continued through most of the night.

Reid says Pershing County deputies are working with a Navy search and rescue team and might bring in the Civil Air Patrol.
