The Carlsbad Current-Argus reports that the family from Carlsbad was reported missing Thursday and that searchers on snowmobile found them safely inside their pickup near Mayhill in the Lincoln National Forest.

The search began after the Otero County Sheriff's Office contacted the New Mexico State Police upon being notified that the family didn't return to a hotel in the area.

State Police Officer David Miller said the family - a man and his three children ages 11-14 - "stayed hunkered down in that pickup truck for the last two days, waiting."
