Missing Myrtle Creek couple found in car stuck in snow

MYRTLE CREEK, Ore. (AP) - A Myrtle Creek couple has been located in their Subaru, stuck in the snow after they failed to return from a drive over the weekend.

The Douglas County Sheriff's Office said in a news release that a U.S. Forest Service employee found Peggy and Clyde Snyder Tuesday afternoon about 31 miles up a snow-covered road near Tiller.

The sheriff's office said both were reported to be in good condition and that 53-year-old Clyde Snyder had been removed from the vehicle by Tuesday afternoon.

Because of weather conditions, authorities said 54-year-old Peggy was still in the vehicle and awaiting a snow cat and team from Josephine County to assist with her extraction.

The Coos Bay World reported (http://bit.ly/2n1Xg5Z) the Snyders hadn't been seen since they left their home Sunday morning.
