Two mushroom pickers found safe west of Carlton

CARLTON — Two adult mushroom pickers who were reported missing Sunday night about 11 miles west of Carlton in the area of McGuire Reservoir, off Meadow Lake Road, were found safe Monday morning.

Yamhill County Search & Rescue members responded to the area upon receiving news the pickers were missing, and they returned Monday morning.

"They were unable to get to their car Sunday night, so they hunkered down overnight, and reached their car this morning (Monday)," sheriff's Capt. Tim Svenson said. "They were driving out of the area when they were spotted by a member of Search & Rescue."

Identities were not available, but Svenson said they were retirees from McMinnville.
