    WASHINGTON – James Vaughn spent five days lost and alone in the snowy Alps after bailing out of his B-24 when a mechanical failure killed two of its engines.
    It was 1943 and Vaughn, of Okmulgee, was cold, tired and hungry. So, he thought the other person he saw in the snow was his mind playing tricks.
    He followed footsteps over a ridge and quickly realized it wasn’t an illusion.
