RENO, Nev. (AP) — A search has grown in the mountains of northwest Nevada for a couple and four children who went to play in the snow and haven't returned after two nights of sub-zero temperatures.

Sheila Reitz of the Pershing County Sheriff's Office said Tuesday that additional rescuers had come from Douglas, Lander and Humboldt counties to help find the missing people.

The temperature in nearby Lovelock was 10 degrees below zero early Tuesday.

Crews are trying to find 34-year-old James Glanton, his 25-year-old girlfriend, Christina McIntee, and the four children: a 10-year-old, two 4-year-olds and a 3-year-old.

Officials said the group went to the Seven Troughs area on Sunday.
