STATELINE, Nev. —
A missing snowboarder who prompted an all-night search at Heavenly Ski Resort was found safe and sound at a Lake Tahoe casino.
The Douglas County sheriff's office says 24-year-old Corey Hoffman of Gardnerville was unaware of the search efforts to find him after his brother reported him missing Wednesday night.
Hoffman called his father Thursday to say he was OK. He spent the night at the Horizon Hotel Casino in Stateline.
Authorities say Hoffman's brother reported they became separated on their last run of the day Wednesday. Hoffman's vehicle with his cellphone inside was found in the ski resort's parking lot.
Rescuers searched throughout the night in snow, wind and avalanche danger. More than 75 people were involved in the search that included two helicopters. The cost is estimated $40,000.
