UPDATE: Noelle Pikus-Pace’s brother and his children found in Idaho

Jul 27, 2014, 4:00 PM EST

UPDATE (5:29 p.m.): Pikus-Pace says her brother and his children were found by search and rescue teams.

“They just found them!!! I don’t know the details yet, but they are all safe!  They found a road and someone found them!,” Pikus-Pace said via text message.

 

PREVIOUSLY: Noelle Pikus-Pace‘s brother, Jared Pikus, and three of his children went missing while camping in Idaho over the weekend, and search and rescue crews were looking for them Sunday morning, Pikus-Pace said in a text message.

Pikus and his children were last seen by other campers Saturday in a non-easily hikeable area, according to NBC News.

“They have search and rescue teams from different counties in Idaho searching but still haven’t found any sign of them,” said Pikus-Pace, the Sochi Olympic skeleton silver medalist. “They found his campsite and SUV. They aren’t allowing the public to search only search and rescue members. They said the terrain is pretty rough in the area. He went fishing with the kids at one of the “Gospel” lakes but they didn’t take a boat. They have life jackets and usually fish from the lake side.

“My husband, kids and I just spent a few days with them and were making our way home (stopping along the way). We were in Burley, about 6 hours south of their home and are now driving up there.”

Pikus-Pace has also posted updates on her social media accounts.
