Submitted By: K2 News Desk, info@k2tv.com

The missing Wisconsin couple has been found safe near Yellowstone, after being stuck in their car for almost a week. Park County sheriff's spokesman Lance Mathess says the owner of a guest ranch heard about the missing couple and went looking for them on his snowmobile. He found them stuck on the Beartooth highway about 8:30 Monday morning. Mark and Kkristine Wathke were last seen 6 days ago -- leaving the north east entrance of the park. Mathess says the couple was cold and hungry, but otherwise okay. He adds they either didn't see, or ignored signs warning that the highway was closed.
