BREAKING: Sweetwater County searches for 2 missing hunters

(Rock Springs, Wyo.) - The Sweetwater County Sheriff’s Office announced today that there is an ongoing search for two Rock Springs men in the area generally southwest of Wamsutter. According to a release issued by the Sweetwater County Sheriff's Office late this afternoon, the men are identified as Allen James Hendrickson, 28, and Sean T. Jereb, 27. Sheriff’s Office spokesman Dick Blust said it was reported to the Sheriff’s Office Tuesday morning that the two went rabbit hunting on Sunday, but had not been heard from since. As of about 4:30 p.m. today, search efforts are focused on the area of the last coordinates obtained for one of the pair’s cellular telephone. Involved in the search are sheriff’s deputies, volunteers from Sweetwater Search & Rescue, and the Civil Air Patrol. Authorities are asking that people not search for Hendrickson and Jereb on their own. “Weather conditions in the area are not good,” said Blust. “If others become lost or disabled, even with the best of intentions, they put themselves at risk.” Blust said Hendrickson and Jereb are reported to be in a grey 2007 Ford Focus. #buckrail #county10 #news
