The search is concentrated in the northeastern part of the county where 22 searchers are scouring the area on snowmobiles.
According to Tanny McGinnis, spokeswoman for the Garfield County Sheriff’s Office, a party of five hunters from metro Denver left camp on Saturday morning but the three did not return that evening.
The two hunters who returned to the camp searched all day Sunday and notified law enforcement of their missing colleagues Sunday night.
