BEAVER, Utah (AP) — Searchers on Friday found the body of a snowmobiler missing in rural southern Utah following an avalanche Thursday.

The Beaver County Sheriff's Office said the avalanche occurred in the eastern Beaver Mountains near the border with Piute and Sevier counties.

His man's identity was not released.

Another member of a group of three snowmobilers also was caught by the avalanche and was injured but dug himself out.

The searchers consisted teams from the three counties plus other local, state and federal agencies.
