Update: Search Suspeded for Missing Woman

By  | 

Eagle County officials say they will have to suspend their search for a missing Nebraska woman near Beaver Creek Mountain.

56-year-old Mary Brake was horseback riding with her family Friday evening, when her horse lost its footing and she was thrown into the creek.

Rescuers from 16 different agencies have spent the past three and a half days looking for her, but to no avail.

Officials say they've exhausted every available option and now must wait for the harsh water conditions to change.

The Eagle County Sheriff's Office says even though the search has been suspended for now, the case remains open and won't be called off until Brake's body is found.
