A 17-year-old in British Columbia who went missing while snowmobiling has been found safe after he survived by building a snow cave until rescuers could find him.
The unidentified boy had been snowmobiling when he was separated from his group, according to the South Cariboo Search & Rescue.
Family and friends waited for the teen but he failed to show, prompting them to alert the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) at around 6:15 p.m. on Saturday, according to CNN. Some of the group began searching for the teen while others went to go alert South Cariboo Search & Rescue.
Meanwhile, after numerous failed attempts to find his group along with the fact that he was not familiar with the area, the young man decided to build a snow cave for shelter until rescuers could find him. (Read more from “Missing 17-Year-Old Built Snow Cave to Survive Until Rescuers Arrived” HERE)
