VOYAGEURS NATIONAL PARK, Minn. (KNSI) Two snowmobilers who went missing in a St. Louis County park have been found safe after they spent a frigid night in an unheated boathouse.

The two Hibbing men were snowmobiling in Voyageur's National Park. They were expected to return home late Saturday. When they didn't show up, a rescue squad began searching for them Sunday.

As officers were checking local resorts and hotels, the men made their way back to the Ash River Trail.

They told authorities they got lost after getting disoriented in the blowing, drifting snow. They took refuge in the park's boathouse.

One man had sustained a minor back injury. Neither man required hospitalization.

Their names haven't been released.
