LANDER, Wyo. (AP) – Authorities say two hunters who were missing in central Wyoming amid wintry weather have been found alive.

52- year-old Dean Staszak (STAZ’-ik) of Lander was on foot when he came upon a rescue party that was just organizing to search for him Sunday morning.
His condition wasn’t immediately available.

A helicopter picked up 53-year-old Harold Yennie of Rock Springs later in the day and took him to a hospital for treatment for dehydration and frostbite. He was found about five miles from his pickup.

The men were hunting separately and had been missing since Friday.

Rescuers encountered deep snow, high winds, whiteout conditions and mud on Saturday. Fremont County Sheriff’s Captain David Good said it was a miracle that both hunters were found alive.
