Summit County search and rescuers Sunday morning located two overdue snowmobilers.

Sheriff's Sgt. Ron Bridge said the two men, who are friends in their late 30s, were found just before 10:30 a.m. and were in good condition.

Bridge said search efforts were launched about 6:30 a.m. when the pair did not come back as expected.

The search, which also involved the Utah Highway Patrol helicopter, occurred in the Bear River Service area on the Mirror Lake Highway.

Bridge said the two men brought supplies with them so they could survive overnight if necessary.
