ASHLAND, Ore. (AP) — Authorities say they have found the three missing snowboarders who failed to return from Mount Ashland as planned – alive and well.

The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office on Monday said the men went to the mountain on Sunday at about 10:30 a.m. A family member alerted the sheriff’s office to the missing group when they didn’t return the next day.

Rescuers found the snowboarders at about 12:30 p.m. on Monday. Officials said the three are in good condition and warming up with hot beverages.

Mount Ashland is the highest peak in the Siskiyou Mountains, just south of Ashland in southern Oregon.
