2 Dead in Mackinac Island Snowmobile Wreck

2 women are dead after a snowmobile accident on Mackinac Island last night.

Island police say they fell from a steep hill.

The 2 women were sisters — 59-year-old Karen Schwarck, from the island, and 57-year-old Edith Bonno of downstate Canton.

Schwarck’s husband reported them missing shortly after 10 last night.

They’d been out riding on a trip around the island to take pictures, but they never came home.

Police, fire crews and EMS workers searched for hours.

They found the 2 women shortly after 2 this morning.

The women, and their sled, were at the bottom of a hill off of West Bluff Drive.

Both of them were dead before help arrived.
