BRECKENRIDGE, COLO. (AP) _ Authorities say one of the snowmobilers lost in the snow-covered mountains west of Denver is dead.
The other two men in the group are recovering at a Glenwood Springs hospital this morning after a national guard helicopter spotted their campfire Tuesday night.
Craig Morris, of Florida, and Murry Melloni of Littleton told rescuers that John McKibben of Kremmling died sometime Monday night.
Crews are planning to resume a search this morning to find Mckibben's body.
The three men failed to return Sunday night from a planned one-day trip.
Rescuers say cell-phone text messages the men sent, helped find them.
