BOISE (AP) - Search and rescue crews have located a 43-year-old Twin Falls man who had been missing since failing to return home after a weekend snowmobiling trip.

The Twin Falls County sheriff's office says Brad Craig was found alive after spending two nights in the Sawtooth National Forest.

His niece, Katie Craig, says he went over a hill and got stuck. He had enough gas in his sled to turn it on occasionally and lay on top of it to get warm.

She says Craig was walking out Tuesday when searchers found him. He was being treated at a Twin Falls hospital after suffering frostbite on his toes.
