HAMPTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) - Five people lost on the frozen Saginaw Bay have made it safely back to shore thanks to the help of U.S. Coast Guard personnel.

The Bay City Times (https://bit.ly/1vBJVDZ ) reports the U.S. Coast Guard Saginaw River Station in Essexville received a report of two adults and three children lost on the ice off of Callahan Road on Sunday evening. According to Petty Officer E6 Terry Reed, the Coast Guard deployed an airboat and found the five people more than 2 miles from shore about an hour and a half later.

Reed says the group was on an all-terrain vehicle and had gotten lost due to a snow storm.

He says the Coast Guard guided them back to shore and no one was injured.
