Missing hunters identified after crash into Idaho river

Authorities have identified four hunters who remain missing after a crash in the Idaho backcountry.

  

The Idaho County Sheriff's Office on Sunday said the men are: Koby Clark of Bozeman, Montana, Reece Rollins of Terrebonne, Oregon and brothers Raymond and Jesse Ferrieri of Mahapac Falls, New York.

  

According to the Ravalli Republic , authorities recovered the SUV on Wednesday from the upper Selway River. The vehicle flipped into the river early Monday in a remote part of central Idaho about 60 miles west of Darby, Montana.

  

Authorities have continued searching for the men, but Idaho County Sheriff Doug Giddings has described the effort as a "recovery" mission.

  

Two of the men inside escaped the vehicle with minor injuries and have returned to their homes in Georgia.
