GPS Led Canadian Couple to Tragedy

Husband's remains found after wife was stranded for weeks on mountain road

The remains of a Canadian man who disappeared outside a small Nevada town were found this week, bringing to a close an ordeal that began 18 months ago near the Nevada-Idaho state line. Albert and Rita Chretian were on their way to a Las Vegas trade show when their GPS led them astray, taking them through a dangerous pass and eventually stranding them on a deserted road six miles from Mountain City, Nevada. Albert left to search for help and never returned. Authorities believe Albert became caught in a snowstorm and succumbed to the cold. Rita was stranded for seven weeks, surviving on trail mix and snow, until she was found by a volunteer search-and-rescue team.
