Search Continues for a Utah Man Trapped in Avalanche


A search continues for a man that is believed to be trapped in an avalanche in Utah. Two men were high up in Utah's Provo Canyon Saturday when the slide hit. One of the men, who was traveling on snow shoes is missing, and authorities believe him to be still trapped in the snow. The other man, Jeff Frederick, was able to ride out the avalanche and go for help. Frederick's friend, who authorities have not yet identified, could not be found.
The search was temporarily suspended because of heavy snow and wind, but search and rescue crews were back out looking Sunday morning.
