RENO, Nev., Dec 10 (Reuters) - A Nevada couple and four young children reported missing on Sunday in a remote mountain range northeast of Reno were found safe by rescue workers on Tuesday huddled in a canyon, a dispatch supervisor for the Pershing County Sheriff's Office said.

The couple had taken the children, who range in age from three to 10, on an outing to an abandoned mining camp in the Seven Troughs range on Sunday to play in the snow, the authorities said.

Dispatch supervisor Sheila Reitz said the six were found in good condition and were taken to a hospital in the nearby town of Lovelock for evaluation.
