Search Continues for Missing Skiers

By Beacon Staff

CHEYENNE, Wyo. – Rescuers have narrowed their search for two men missing since they set out on skis to climb in the Tetons last weekend.

Officials say 27-year-old Walker Kuhl of Salt Lake City and 31-year-old Gregory Seftick of Columbia Falls, Mont., went up Garnet Canyon on the east side of the Tetons Saturday and were supposed to return Sunday. They were reported missing Monday.

Grand Teton National Park spokeswoman Jackie Skaggs says teams have narrowed the search area and are looking at an area in the canyon where an avalanche occurred.

About 20 people continued looking for the men Wednesday. Good weather enabled them to fly in by helicopter and not have to ski into the search zone.

Skaggs says they have yet to find any sign of the men.
