The two Arctic Bay, Nunavut, teen boys who were missing after going hunting with their father have been found safe.

A hamlet official says the young men had been following their father by snowmobile when they became separated.

Then, the father's machine broke down and he activated his Spot device, an electronic GPS locator. The father, Moses Koonoo, was found in the early hours Tuesday morning.

Three search teams went out on the sea ice looking for his sons, Jeremy and Simon.

The two boys were found after they managed to find a cabin and use a radio to call for help.
