Governor tours mudslide near Collbran, Colorado

COLLBRAN, Colo. (AP) - Gov. John Hickenlooper has toured the mudslide area near Collbran, where three men are still missing.

The governor flew over the half-mile-wide by 3-mile-long slide in a Colorado National Guard helicopter Saturday. The slide, which was triggered last Sunday, is about 11 miles south of Collbran.

Authorities are studying the site on a northern face of Colorado's Grand Mesa to understand what triggered the event.

A memorial service is planned in Collbran on Sunday afternoon for the three missing men - 51-year-old Clarence "Clancy" Allen Nichols, his 24-year-old son, Daniel Allen Nichols, and 46-year-old Wesley "Wes" Melvin Hawkins.
