The couple were found near their vehicle near the Ponderosa Park Area. "They were found with no injuries, they were certainly cold and hungry but found safe. They did the right thing and stayed with their vehicle." The couple had reportedly gone for a drive up the mountain and their vehicle got stuck, stranding them until authorities could locate them. "We would just like to recommend to people to always notify somebody where you are going, whether it be a text or written on paper.Make sure to bring appropriate weather gear, and if you do get stuck or something happens, stay with your vehicle," stated Sgt. Shatto. #oilcity #news
