Skandia Bird Hunters Found

The two bird hunters who told police they were missing in Skandia last night have been found safely.

47-year-old Robert Darling and 22-year-old Sonya Gilbertson, both of Marquette, were hunting west of Camp 4 Road at about 8 last night when they got lost.

They called 911 for help.

The Marquette County Sheriff’s Department and Marquette County Search and Rescue found the two at about 10 last night with the help of K-9 teams.

Darling and Gilbertson were in a swampy, heavily wooded area about a half-mile from their vehicle.

The two had pitched a fire to keep warm while awaiting rescue and were in good condition.
