PENDLETON, Ore. (AP) - Two target shooters got lost in the mountains of the Umatilla National Forest, but they were home well before Christmas.

The East Oregonian reports (http://is.gd/BhJe9P ) 48-year-old Scott Rice and 23-year-old Brent Rowan left Monday to shoot guns at Indian Lake, about 35 miles southeast of Pendleton.

According to the Umatilla County Sheriff’s Office, the pair got lost on snow-covered roads after leaving the lake. They decided to call for help Tuesday after running low on gasoline. They had water in the vehicle, but no food.

The Umatilla County Search and Rescue unit followed cellphone and GPS data to find the two men about five hours after the call came in. The men were a few miles from Indian Lake.
