SUNRIVER, OR -- Deschutes County Search and Rescue teams helped a couple who got lost while snowshoeing near Edison Butte, Friday afternoon. David and Judith Russell, of Mt. Hood, called 911 just before 5 p.m. to report they’d been going in circles for hours and were exhausted, with little food and water left.

 

SAR volunteers responded to the Edison Sno-Park, then took two track quads the 2.8 miles to the AC/DC shelter. The team had to snowshoe the final quarter mile from the AC/DC shelter to reach the 75 and 74-year-old at about 8:15 p.m.

 

The volunteers took the Russells to the Edison Sno-Park Trailhead, arriving just before 10:30 p.m. Authorities say the couple started their trek at 11 a.m. and had no map of the area, nor did they have a working light or way to start a fire.
