Lost Hunters found safe
Two hunters who had been come disoriented in heavy snowfall north of Lincoln used a deactivated cell phone to call 911 at about 5 p.m. Friday Nov. 17, to report they were lost. Members of the Lewis and Clark Search and Rescue and Lincoln Fire Department found the men , identified by ABC/Fox new station KFBB as 26-year-old Jeff Larweck and his brother, 28-year-old James Larweck, about two miles north of Sucker Creek Road around 10 p.m. Both men were safe and reportedly happy to be found. An unidentified woman hunting in the area was also thought to be missing, but had made it back to her vehicle. Although the men’s cellphone was deactivated, it could call 911, which helped searchers determine their latitude and longitude. The men, who were dressed for the winter weather, stopped and made a fire while they waited to be found. “I am very pleased they stopped walking when they realized they were lost, thought about what to do, prepared for a stay by building a fire and had a communications device that was able to make contact with 911,” Lewis and Clark county Sheriff Leo Dutton said.
