The missing family is found alive after they weren't heard from since leaving for the wilderness of Nevada on Sunday. Two adults and four children, three of the kids which are toddlers, survived the subzero temperatures for two nights in the mountains, according to MSN.com on Dec. 10.

James Glanton 34, his girlfriend Christina McIntee, 25, their two children and a niece and a nephew left on Sunday to go sledding and never returned. The search for the family started Sunday night and continued straight through to Tuesday when searchers happened upon the family.

Folks were elated to hear that the family was found alive. They all seemed to be fine, but were taken to area hospitals for evaluation. Many consider this a miracle today as the bitter cold temperatures were a dangerous factor for the family, but they made it through alive.

On Sunday a ping off Christina McIntee’s cell phone put the family near the Seven Troughs area. The search from both land and air turned up nothing, not even their car, until a searcher happened upon them today. About 100 locals joined the search parties along with various rescue groups.

The family was found on Tuesday huddled together inside their vehicle about six miles outside of town in the Kamma Mountains. There is no word yet from the family about what happened, but the big news is that they are found safe and sound.
