Search set to resume for missing Colo. snowboarder

HOT SULPHUR SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) – Search and rescue teams plan to resume the search for a snowboarder missing on Berthoud Pass.

The Grand County sheriff’s office says 26-year-old Jeffrey Miller of the Winter Park area went missing Monday when snowboarding with a friend.

The friend said he saw Miller and Miller’s dog behind him after a small snow slide nearby, but didn’t see them a little later. He said he went down the drainage two more times, but couldn’t find Miller.

About 40 people looked for Miller Monday and Tuesday.

U.S. 40 over Berthoud Pass was reopened Tuesday after being closed since Monday due to snow and strong winds. More snow was falling on Wednesday.
