COLLBRAN, CO – The search continues for three men who went missing in a massive mudslide on Sunday after investigating damage from earlier slide.
The men haven’t been heard from since a mile wide piece of ridge collapsed on Sunday, sending mud and debris down the hillside up to three miles away.
Mesa County Sheriff Stan Hilkey said the search has been difficult because much of the area is still unstable. Hilkey says at the slide’s edges the mud is 20 to 30 feet deep. It’s believed to be several hundred feet deep in some places.
Hilkey says everyone is praying for a miracle but said no signs of the men or their truck and ATV have been found.
Hilkey says he has consulted with the Snohomish County Sheriff, who responded to the mudslide in Oso, Washington, for advice on how to handle the search.
