RCMP in Labrador have reported that two men who were travelling by snowmobile from Happy Valley-Goose Bay to Rigolet have been located.

Police said the men left Happy Valley-Goose Bay on Tuesday morning, but did not return home as expected by nightfall.

Ground Search and Rescue Teams were alerted on Wednesday morning, and a police plane located the men a short time later, about 40 km from Rigolet.

Police said weather conditions had deteriorated on Tuesday and the men spent the night in a cabin until the weather improved.  

Neither man was injured and they arrived safely in Rigolet shortly before lunchtime on Wednesday.
