COLLBRAN, Colo. (AP) -- Authorities haven't found any sign of three men missing after a massive mudslide struck a remote part of western Colorado.

Fifty-one-year-old county road worker Clancy Nichols, his 24-year-old son Danny and 46-year-old Wes Hawkins have been missing since Sunday after rain-saturated ridge collapsed.

Searchers looked for the men Monday at the lower end of the slide. The upper portion is considered too unstable and is at risk of sliding again.

The search is scheduled to resume Tuesday.
