County search and rescue team assists stranded snowmobiler

By Jim O’Reilly

Carbon County Search and Rescue came to the aid of another stranded, out-of-state snowmobiler last week. The Carbon County Sheriff’s Department reports that a man from Iowa called for help after his sled became stuck near the Quealy Warming Hut on the West Side of the Snowy Range. Devon Ray Johnson of Sheldon, Iowa, called 911 and reported his location.

Johnson said he did not have food or necessities to survive the night after becoming separated from his companions. A search and rescue team from Ryan Park and Saratoga located the snowmobiler just before 6 p.m. and dug out his sled. Everyone made it back to the command post safely.
