JUAB COUNTY -- A new search is underway for missing West Valley City mom Susan Powell. A group that calls itself "Mojave Underground Utah" is searching abandoned mine shafts near Eureka.

Thursday, volunteers lowered a camera 1,200 feet down to the bottom of an old silver mine in hopes of finding Powell's body.

Their search came up empty, but the group intends to continue its efforts in other abandoned mines in the state, which number near 20,000.

Their method is controversial, however, because they don't have approval from city and state authorities to conduct these searches.

Powell has been missing since last December.
