Sheriff Stan Hilkey said yesterday the massive slide moved with so much force and velocity that it roared down a hill, and plowed up and down another hill. A helicopter, ground searchers and drones were used yesterday in the unstable, dangerous area where the men vanished.

It’s believed the men went to the site near the town of Collbran to check on problems with irrigation water, then went to look at a smaller, earlier slide, when the huge slide hit Sunday night.
