A Nevada family missing since Sunday in freezing temperatures after they went out to play in the snow was found alive Tuesday.
"We have located the people. They have been taken to the hospital. They are alive and well," said Pershing County Undersheriff Thomas Bjerke, according to USA Today. "They are in pretty good shape."

All six were taken to Pershing County General Hospital.
More than 200 people have been searching for the two adults and four children, aged 3 to 10 years, who went out to play in the snow and didn’t return, The Associated Press said
. The extreme temperatures, which went to minus 10 degrees Tuesday, made many fear for the family's safety.
James Glanton and his girlfriend Christina McIntee, along with two of their children Evan and Chloe Glanton, and McIntee’s niece and nephew, Shelby Fitzpatrick and Tate McIntee went missing in the Seven Troughs area, northwest of Lovelock.
Authorities had been searching and they got a signal from Christina McIntee’s phone in the area, the AP said. The search area was expanded, and two airplanes and two helicopters worked with people on the ground to search.
The family was traveling in a Jeep and no one knew if they carried any supplies. Searchers hoped the missing people stayed with the car because the snow made searching difficult, and the Jeep’s black top would be easier to spot.
