Deer in Minidoka County Park


Minidoka County Sheriff Kevin Halverson said Matthew Williams, and his daughter were found at about 4:30 p.m. Friday.

They managed to walk 12 miles from where their car had broken down. 

“They were very cold and scraped-up but in good condition” after spending the night in a cave and walking about a dozen miles, Halverson said.

I don’t have a picture, yet, but I wanted to post this for everyone.

There is a father and his 4-year-old daughter missing in the Minidoka desert in Idaho.  Matthew Robert Williams, 29 and his daughter who are from Rupert, got a flat tire on Thursday.  Matthew called his wife to tell her they were walking for help.  Matthew left his car and took his daughter and they are now missing.

Rescue teams and officials are searching by ground and air to find them.  They have covered the northern part of Minidoka County. 

Mattew’s phone has been pinged in an attempt to narrow down the search and find him and his daughter.

The vehicle they were driving, a 1999 white GM pickup, with license plate 2M42796 has not been found.
