GARFIELD COUNTY, Colo.(AP) - Crews were searching in heavy snow and wind for the hunters Tuesday, the second day of the search.

The three men were reported missing Sunday evening by two other members of their hunting party. The missing hunters failed to return to their camp on Saturday evening and the two other hunters searched all day Sunday looking for them before calling authorities.

Search teams from Garfield, Eagle and Mesa counties are looking for the missing hunters using four-wheelers and snowmobiles.

The names of the hunters were not released, and authorities said there may be a "language barrier with the lost hunters" but they didn't elaborate.
