WASATCH COUNTY, Utah (News4Utah) A 60-year-old man was recused after spending several days lost in the mountains east of Herber City.

David Hales and his snowmobile got stuck in deep snow over the weekend. He was reported missing to authorities Monday evening.  

Hales told search and rescue crews he couldn’t turn his sled around, so instead of just sitting there he built a fire. He eventually began walking out of the area.

Then around 9:45a.m. Tuesday, two pilots with the Wasatch County Search and Rescue team found him.

Hales was taken to local hospital for treatment.
