Missing snowmobiler found near Superior after two days in bitter cold

SUPERIOR, WI (WTAQ) - A snowmobiler missing for two days in bitter cold weather in Superior was found alive today.

A snow-plow driver found 51-year-old Craig Friebe walking on the Nemadji River around 8:50 this morning.

Douglas County sheriff’s deputies were called – and they took him to a hospital in nearby Duluth Minnesota with hypothermia and apparent frost-bite.

Officials said Friebe was snowmobiling on the Nemadji River, just like he told friends he would do. But his machine ran out of gas, and he had to walk a long distance to get help.

Superior Fire Battalion Chief Vern Johnson said Friebe was able to build a fire for himself on Saturday night, but not last night – when the mercury fell to 20-below and wind-chills hit minus-40.

Friebe had not been seen since Saturday morning, when he left to go snowmobiling.

The U.S. Coast Guard, DNR, and local rescuers searched for Friebe Sunday – and the search resumed Monday morning when he was found during the first hour.
