Two Bend residents are rescued by the Deschutes County Search and Rescue Team and several Sheriff’s deputies. Nick Fetters, 27, and Melinda Vachon, 26, were driving along U.S. Forest Service road 18 about 40 miles south of Bend when they became stuck in the snow in an area where there was no cell phone service. They left the vehicle and started walking to safety, but got too cold, and returned to their vehicle.  Searchers were sent to the area around 7 p.m. Saturday night. They found the vehicle around 11and returned the victims to safety.
