Two members of the family which was lost for two weeks in their snowbound RV have vanished again, with warrants out for their arrest.

Eleven months ago, Elbert and Becky Higginbotham were caught in Arizona with a small amount of methamphetamine and a shotgun, but they agreed to cooperate with investigators.

Then they disappeared.

They turned up in a big way last Tuesday as momentary national celebrities when they were rescued with four relatives in Oregon's Coast Range.

One of the investigators in the Arizona drug case remembered them.

The couple is charged with possession of methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia.

Elbert Higginbotham is also wanted on a charge of misconduct involving weapons.

Relatives say the Higginbothams headed back to Navajo County, Arizona, on their own, in the same motor home they got stuck in.
