Snowmobilers missing in Summit County

BRECKENRIDGE, Colorado ” Authorities say three snowmobilers have been missing since Sunday night in the mountains of Summit County west of Denver.

Sheriff’s spokeswoman Paulette Horr says a search got under way Tuesday morning. She says searchers couldn’t start sooner because of bad weather and avalanche danger.

Authorities identified the missing men as John McKibben of Kremmling, Murry Mellonio of Littleton and Greg Morris of Florida. Morris’ hometown hasn’t been released.

Horr says the men failed to return from a day trip on Sunday night but family members didn’t notify authorities until Monday evening.

Authorities say three friends who were searching for the missing men got stranded at a cabin but got out late Monday night.
