Two Salina men are safe after getting their SUV stuck in a bog.

According to Sheriff Glen Kochanowski, a late night drive in northwest Saline County turned into a search for one man Thursday afternoon.

Deputies were contacted by 28-year-old Brent Martin yesterday, after he left a Chevy Suburban and walked 7-miles into Brookville to find help. Martin told authorities he and 59-year-ol Robert Albers Jr. had been riding around in a remote area west of Brookville and got stuck in the mud.

Sheriff Kochanowski tells KSAL News that after three or four Saline County Sheriff’s Deputies were out searching the hilly terrain for the SUV with no success – the Kansas Highway Patrol went airborne.

The pilot located the SUV just before 5pm Thursday, about 600 feet off Eff Creek Road in a field.

Minutes later, Deputies made contact with  Albers who was resting under a shade tree. The men told deputies they had been looking for the home of Alber’s father when they got stuck.

The vehicle was pulled out with a tow truck.

The two men could be facing a charge of trespassing.
