Did your husband have Find My iPhone enabled on his iPhone before he lost it in the snow? If he had Find My iPhone enabled and the power was turned on, the reason that you cannot find it would be that it is buried in the snow. If the phone slipped into the snow on one of its edges, it would not have to fall more than a couple of inches into the snow for the signal to be lost. If you cannot locate it, either because the Find My iPhone function was not enabled or because the iPhone has slipped into the snow and is now buried, you can still protect yourself by changing your Apple ID password, your email passwords, and any other internet account passwords. You should take these actions as soon as possible.
