Rescuers are still searching a western Colorado plateau tonight for a 54-year-old cross-country skier missing for more than two days.
Dan Walker separated from his family Sunday night to look for help after they got lost during a ski outing. Rescuers are in a race with time to find Walker before a cold front arrives in Colorado tomorrow with subzero temperatures.
Rescue crews found his wife, Debra Walker, and the couple's 18-year-old daughter, Camille, shortly after 8 a-m today. The women were picked up in an area about three-and-a-half miles from the Mesa Lakes Lodge at about 98-hundred feet.
They were taken to Saint Mary's Hospital in Grand Junction, where a spokeswoman says Camille was treated and released. Debra Walker is listed in fair condition.
Heavy snow was falling on Grand Mesa today, with winds gusting to 30 miles per hour -- enough to rule out a helicopter search.
Up to eight feet of snow has fallen since Saturday and the temperature has hovered in the 20s.
