RENO, Nevada - A Nevada couple and four young children reported missing on Sunday in a remote mountain range northeast of Reno were found safe by rescue workers on Tuesday huddled in a canyon, a dispatch supervisor for the Pershing County Sheriff's Office said.


The couple had taken the children, who range in age from 3 to 10, on an outing to an abandoned mining camp in the Seven Troughs range of northwestern Nevada on Sunday to play in the snow, authorities said.
