Rescuers are racing the clock and battling bitterly cold
weather in Nevada as they frantically search for a couple and four children who
went missing on Sunday.

According to The Huffington Post

“Aircraft and crews on the ground were searching for
34-year-old James Glanton, his 25-year-old girlfriend, Christina McIntee, and
the four children: a 10-year-old, two 4-year-olds and a 3-year-old.”

Two of the children are believed to belong to the couple,
and the other two are a niece and nephew.

The family reportedly went to “go play in the
snow” on Sunday afternoon and never returned.

According to NBC News,

“The silver Jeep the family was riding in was last seen
‘doing wheelies or donuts’ at a mining camp in Seven Troughs, Pershing dispatch
supervisor Sheila Reitz said. The mountain range is 20 miles from their house.”

Temperatures dipped far below the freezing point last night
in the snow-covered area of northwest Nevada.

“I’m hoping they all huddled together and stayed in the
Jeep,” Nevada Highway Patrol Trooper Chuck Allen told Fox News, adding that
the area has spotty cellular coverage. “That would be a best-case
scenario.”

We’re praying this story has a happy ending…
