UPDATE -- Crews searched tirelessly all through Monday night searching for the couple and four children missing in Pershing County. 

News 4 spoke with Pershing County Sheriff's Office Tuesday morning and confirmed that crews stopped searching at 3 a.m. Crews will meet at 6 a.m. at the local Community Center to re-distribute people and continue the search.

Deputies say infrared was used Monday night to aid in the search. There is no word yet on whether or not they will be holding a news conference Tuesday morning.

UPDATE-- According to a family friend, two of the four children missing belong to James Glanton and Christina Mclintee. The other two children are the niece and nephew of the couple. The parents of the other two children, Sean and Melissa Mclintee are taking part in the search and rescue team.

LOVELOCK, Nev. (AP) -- A search is on in Pershing County for a couple and four children who went out to play in the snow and haven't returned home.

Deputies in Pershing County say aircraft went back up about 6:30 a.m. Monday to look for 34-year-old James Glanton, his 25-year-old girlfriend Christina McIntee and the four children, including a 10-year-old, two 4-year-olds and a 3-year-old.

Officials say the group went out to the Seven Troughs area about noon Sunday in a 2005 Jeep but hasn't come home.

Dispatcher Jerry Reid says a search and rescue operation started a little after 8 p.m. Sunday and continued through most of the night.

Reid says Pershing County deputies are working with a Navy search and rescue team, and may also bring in the Civil Air Patrol.

Hard to believe that with clear weather and a white snowy background a black roofed Jeep couldn't be spotted from the air by now. Doesn't sound good for the family.
