A father and 3 children are missing in snowy forest land in Northern California. The family was cutting their Christmas Tree on Sunday and appear to have gotten lost in the woods. Their truck has been found and search is underway, but heavy snow and bad weather are hampering search efforts.
The SAR teams do not want additional volunteers due to bad weather – they fear more could be lost. One of the party is reported to be experienced with outdoor survival skills, so hopefully the group stuck together and created a shelter. They had coats and temperatures, though cold, could be survivable with adequate shelter and water.

ABC News reports that Butte County SAR is searching cabins in the area where the family may have sought shelter.
