Aerial search continues for James Glanton, Christina McIntee and 4 kids, missing in rugged area near Reno, Nevada

Rescue teams are mobilizing to resume an aerial search for two adults and four children missing since Sunday.

The group, James Glanton, age 34 and his girlfriend, Christina McIntee, age 25, took the four kids into the remote mountains of northwest Nevada to have fun in the snow.

Tuesday the temperature dropped below zero again, with lows around minus-16 degrees.

“It’s got to be brutal out there,” said Mark Turney, a spokesman for the U.S. Bureau of Land Management. “Let’s hope they are found quick.”

Officials from the Pershing County sheriff’s office identified the four children are Evan Glanton, Chloe Glanton, Shelby Fitzpatrick and Tate McIntee, two are kids of the adults while one is a nephew and the other a niece.

The family has not had any communication with others since they went missing, according to Sheila Reitz of the sheriff’s office.

They went to the Seven Troughs area on isolated federal land about noon on Sunday in a silver Jeep with a black top, authorities said. It was unclear what supplies they might have been carrying.

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

The search for the group began Sunday evening. A Navy search-and-rescue team and the Civil Air Patrol, an all-volunteer auxiliary of the U.S. Air Force, were assisting the sheriff’s office by searching a concentrated area where the group is thought to be.
