4 children found alive after spending night lost in Alaskan blizzard

Alaskan Village of Nunam Iqua

Four children who went missing Sunday during a blizzard in rural Alaska have been found.

The youngest child was just two years old. They were found Monday about 20 miles outside the village of Nunam Iqua, located on Alaska’s west coast.

A representative with Emmonak Search and Rescue spoke with CNN on Monday saying, “The kids are doing fine,” the representative said. “I talked to the grandpa. They were cold and hungry.”

The children may have strayed so far from the village due to lack of visibility and sense of direction in the blizzard.

Alaska State Troopers received a call Sunday just before 6:30 local time that the children had not returned home from a snow-machine ride.

They were called after the children were five hours late in returning home.

The four children were identified as Christopher Johnson, 14, Frank Johnson, 8, Ethan Camille, 7, and Trey Camille, 2.

At last update, the children are all going to be okay.
