PRICE, Utah (AP) – A family member says two natural-gas pipeline workers from Colorado who went missing a week ago have been found dead in a central Utah canyon.

Todd Widegren said Sunday evening that the bodies of his brother, Mark Widegren, and Brian Axe were found inside a Jeep Grand Cherokee in the Cottonwood Canyon area of Nine Mile Canyon Sunday afternoon.

Carbon County Sheriff’s deputies have said that the 28-year-olds were friends and co-workers from Grand Junction, Colo., and were working for the pipeline subcontractor W.C. Striegel. The men used their credit cards on Jan. 28 at a steakhouse in Price, about 120 miles southeast of Salt Lake City. They were last seen driving in the Jeep.

Sheriff’s Lt. Wally Hendricks says in a statement that they crashed in the canyon, and there was no way they could have survived the accident.
