Snowmobilers rescued


   Deschutes County Sheriff's Search and Rescue was called out after two Madras snowmobilers were reported lost in the Moon Mountain area in Deschutes County, Dec. 21.
   Kyle Devine, 24, and Travis Olson, 23, both of Madras, were reported lost by Olson's mother at 7:50 p.m.
   By cell phone, Devine said they had become separated shortly before dark , then he had become stuck and wasn't sure of his exact location. Attempts to contact Olson by cell phone had failed.
   About 8:45 p.m., Olson made his way back out to Wanoga Sno-Park, where his vehicle was parked. He then met search and rescue personnel at Dutchman Sno-Park by Mount Bachelor.
   Phone contact was made with Devine and search personnel responded with snowmobiles and located Devine near Trail No. 7, west of Moon Mountain.
   They helped Devine dig his snowmobile out and he was able to ride out to Dutchman Sno-Park. Devine suffered some minor frostbite.
