SEARCH DAY 3: Minnesota father, son still missing in Colorado

(KMSP) -

There's still no sign of Damian and Evan McManus, the father-son duo from St. Louis Park, Minn. missing for nearly a week in Colorado.

Damian, 51, and Evan, 19, haven't been seen since last Wednesday. Their last credit card transaction was for breakfast that morning, before the two set off to go hiking near Echo Lake, about an hour west of Denver.

WEATHER + TERRAIN CHALLENGE SEARCH

Rough terrain and winter weather have hampered search and rescue teams, who say any tracks left by the hikers would be covered with fresh snow by now.

"We don't know where they went, what peak, what equipment they have with them," Alpine Rescue spokesman Bill Barwick said.

More than 50 volunteers joined the search on Tuesday.

Katherine McManus, the wife and mother of the missing hikers, arrived in Colorado on Monday to help with the search. She was in Mexico on a spring break trip with her daughter, and discovered on Sunday that her husband and son hadn't returned home as planned.

SURVIVAL SKILLS

Family friend Ira Gurewitz said Damian McManus has military experience and he's hoping the two dug a cave in the snow and are waiting for someone to find them. In the meantime, Evan's girlfriend started a Facebook group to spread information about the search.
