Search and Rescue Called in on 2 Separate Incidents Near Strawberry Reservoir

Search and Rescue teams stayed busy this weekend near Strawberry Reservoir with separate incidents of stranded individuals. The first report came in on Saturday and was reported at 8:30pm. A 61-year-old male and his 14-year-old son were snowmobiling in the Clyde Creek area when they became stuck in the snow and decided to hike to the road. With chest deep snow, the pair stopped to build a fire and call 9-1-1. Wasatch Search and Rescue was deployed and the missing pair were located quickly thanks to GPS coordinates from the 9-1-1 call. On Sunday after 8:00pm, Wasatch Search and Rescue were called back to the Strawberry Reservoir area when an ice fisherman became stranded on the ice after his snowmobile wouldn’t start and as the storm moved in.

Kristin never planned to work in news radio but has thoroughly enjoyed being part of the news team at KVEL. Her love of literature and writing developed in high school which led her to study English Literature and Technical Writing at BYU. She received her BA in English from BYU in 2005 and studied at UVU in Orem for 2 semesters to become a Certified Technical Writer in 2006. Two months after completion she began her dream job of being a stay-at-home mom.  As mother of 2 energetic kids, she began writing from home for the KVEL news team in 2011 and considers it the perfect fit as a full time mom and part time writer.
