IDAHO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - Authorities have confirmed that the bodies of two people found on Mount Evans are that of a father and son missing since going for a hike in April.
The Clear Creek County Sheriff's Office said Friday that the bodies of Damian and Evan McManus of St. Louis Park, Minnesota were recovered Thursday.
They were last heard from April 2 when one of them told a friend they were going to scale a peak. They were reported missing on April 6, when the search for them began.
Dozens of searchers, including some visiting firefighters from the Minneapolis area, have spent about 5,000 hours looking for them.
