MILES CITY, MT (WTAQ) - A northwest Wisconsin couple is safe and sound, after being missing for six days in the area of Yellowstone National Park.
KAJ-TV in Kalispell Montana said Mark and Kristine Wathke of Cornell were found by a rancher around 8:30 a.m. Monday.
The station said their vehicle got stuck in heavy snow -- and they had enough fuel over the past six days to occasionally start their car and keep it warm. Sheriff's officials said the Wathkes had food on them, and they did not require medical attention.
Their vehicle was discovered on the Beartooth Highway near Long Lake in Wyoming.
Earlier, it was reported that the couple told relatives last Tuesday they were expected to be home the following day -- but some time after that, their car got stuck.
Earlier reports said the Wathkes had hotel reservations last Tuesday night in Miles City Montana, but they never showed up there.
