MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) — Rescuers have recovered a sport utility vehicle from the upper Selway River in the Idaho backcountry, but Idaho County Sheriff Doug Giddings says none of the four hunters missing since the crash earlier this week were inside.

The vehicle flipped into the river early Monday in a remote part of central Idaho about 60 miles west of Darby, Montana. Two of six men inside, identified by authorities as Jesse Gunin and Jason Lewis, escaped the vehicle without major injuries and have returned to Georgia.

Giddings says the SUV was recovered Thursday and that searches for the other men would continue.

The missing men have been identified by the sheriff's office as 21-year-old Koby Clark of Bozeman, Montana; 22-year-old Reece Rollins of Terrebonne, Oregon; and brothers Raymond Ferrieri and Jesse Ferrieri, ages 24 and 21, of Mahopac Falls, New York.
