DECKERS, Colo. (AP) _ New York Mets reliever Turk Wendell was rescued Saturday after spending the night stranded in the snowy Rocky Mountain foothills 30 miles outside of Denver.

Wendell and his guide, Jeff Parise, were dehydrated but in good condition when found by a search team, police said.

Kim Stuckenscheider of the Douglas County Sheriff's office said the two men had been mountain lion hunting west of Cheesman Reservoir. When they failed to return, Parise's wife called authorities late Friday.

Rescuers found the men about 10:30 a.m. Saturday in the Pike National Forest.
