Rescuers say a father and his three children who have been missing since Sunday in the California mountains have been found alive.
Search teams struggling through deep snow drifts rescued the family today.
Two of Frederick Dominguez's children emerged from a rescue helicopter after being flown out of the mountains this afternoon.
They were immediately enveloped in a cluster of well-wishers carrying heavy blankets.
The family had been missing since they headed into the woods over the weekend to hunt for a Christmas tree.
