Snowmobiler missing in avalanche

CORTEZ — Rescuers are evaluating the safety of continuing a search Thursday for a snowmobiler who was buried by an avalanche in southwestern Colorado.

Montezuma County Undersheriff Lynda Carter said Wednesday the search will continue when conditions and weather permit.

Four other snowmobilers were caught in the slide in the La Plata Mountains but dug themselves out.

The Durango Herald reports the five snowmobilers were on a tour that left Mancos Wednesday morning and they rode about 20 miles before the slide hit.
