***UPDATED: Missing snowmobiler located safe and sound

A missing snowmobiler has been located safe and sound.

24 year old Pier-Alexandre Hache Desilets had left Bathurst yesterday heading towards the Trudel area and was reported missing after losing cell-phone contact with family.

Searchers located the man in the Salmon Beach area this morning.

The man's mother says he's doing just fine and was able to brave the storm thanks to warm clothing and a heated helmet.

She says Hache only moved to the region from Quebec a few weeks ago and is not familiar with the area's trail system yet.
