Search for missing Minnesota hikers called off

IDAHO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — Rescue teams have called off the search for a father and son from Minnesota who went missing last week in the Colorado mountains.

Alpine Rescue Team spokesman Steve Wilson says the search for 51-year-old Damian McManus and 18-year-old Evan McManus was called off Wednesday evening. They were last heard from April 2 when one of the men told a friend they were going to scale a peak.

The men from St. Louis Park, Minn., were hiking near Mount Evans about 35 miles southwest of Denver.

Searchers aren't sure if they were equipped for wintry conditions.
