MILLARD COUNTY -- Still no sign of a BASE jumper lost in the Notch Peak area of Millard County.

Deputies say 31-year-old LeRoy Buckly of Missouri set out to go BASE jumping with a friend on Wednesday.

That friend, 44-year-old Kurt Gregory of Twin Falls, Idaho, activated his personal distress beacon after becoming separated from Buckly during the hike in and after running out of water. Crews located and rescued Gregory.

Deputies say Buckly also turned on his beacon, but they've not been able to find him at the given location.
