Sheriff’s Officers and Search and Rescue teams rescue two Bend residents who got stranded on a snowy forest service road. Deschutes County Sheriff's Deputy Rhett Hemphill said Jeremiah Budish, 35, and Nancy Walker, 47 were driving toward Sunriver when they got stuck Monday morning. After trying unsuccessfully to free the vehicle, Budish started walking to get help. After several hours, Walker became worried and called 911. A snowmobile team found the two with their vehicle Monday evening.  Hemphill says Budish estimated he walked more than three miles, got very cold and walked back to the vehicle.  He says the man was wearing tennis shoes, jeans and a t-shirt.
