FRASER, Colo. (AP/CBS4) — The Grand County Sheriff’s Office and Grand County Search and Rescue are searching for a missing hunter in the Meadowcreek Reservoir area near the town of Fraser.
Authorities were notified Saturday afternoon that a 51-year-old man was missing. Searchers went out Saturday night and returned on Sunday to continue their search. The search was called off after it got dark but will continue Monday morning.
Authorities are concerned because the overnight temperatures dropped to 16 degrees below zero.
Searchers on Sunday were using ground crews and a military helicopter from the Wyoming National Guard.
