Husband found dead, wife hospitalized after vanishing in desert

An elderly Indiana man who went missing 10 days ago in the Nevada desert has been found dead and his wife is recovering in the hospital after their RV got stuck in the mud, relatives said.

Ronnie Barker, 72, and his 69-year-old wife, Beverly, were found by rescuers late Tuesday after they vanished on March 27 while driving through western Nevada.

The couple’s abandoned RV was located in muddy, mountainous terrain near Silver Peak, their nephew, Travis Peters, said in a Facebook post.

The Kia car they had been towing behind the RV had been removed by the time rescuers reached the area.
