HEBER CITY -- Rescuers have found two snowmobilers missing since Sunday near Red Creek Mountain in Wasatch County.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports that a pilot of an aircraft spotted the men outside a snow cave Tuesday, where the men had built a fire. The two men are said to be in good condition.

Brock Besner, 24, and Craig Dallessandro, 27, went missing on Sunday morning while snowmobiling in the Lake Creek Trailhead area, about 10 miles southeast of Heber.

Search and rescue teams found their snow-covered truck by the trail on Sunday.

Crews had searched about 95 percent of the drainages and canyons in the area since the two men went missing.
