Hungry … but in good health.

 

That was the status Tuesday morning of two 15-year-olds who got lost while riding a snowmobile in the brutal cold.

 

Ty Howard-Gotto and buddy Jonah May, of North Smithfield, RI were traveling from Mexico, Maine to Ty's grandpa's camp in Andover when their orange 2007 Arctic Cat Crossfire snowmobile got stuck in deep snow around 7:30 p.m.

A search was launched when 10 p.m. came around and there was no sign of them. The Maine Wardens Service, joined by volunteers, including members of several area snowmobile clubs, trail groomers and the Mexico Fire Department, fanned out, centralmaine.com reported.

 

The pair were found at 10 a.m. Tuesday and have been reunited with Ty’s grandfather, Phil Howard.. They had found a small shed, where they took shelter. The temperature all night was below zero.

 

The no-longer-lost boys are reportedly hungry.
