SUMMIT COUNTY, Utah — Search and Rescue crews were dispatched to a remote area of Summit County for an overdue snowmobiler Saturday night, but before crews could even reach the area, the missing man was reunited with his group.

The missing man is reportedly safe and in good condition, and the search and rescue response has been called off.

Sgt. Ron Bridge, Summit County Sheriff’s Office, said crews were going to be staging at the Bear River Service Station off of Mirror Lake Highway. According to Google maps, the staging area appears to be less than 10 miles south of the Utah-Wyoming border.

The call was regarding a 50-year-old man who was four hours overdue. FOX 13 News first heard reports of the search just after 7 p.m., and Bridge said a short time after that they received word the man had been found and was safe.
