(Provo-AP) -- There's still no sign of two snowboarders missing in Aspen Grove since December but search and rescue teams aren't giving up.
Utah County Sheriff's officers say recovery efforts are continuing today and through the weekend using K-9s, probe poles and visual searches.
The avalanche killed three snowboarders as they climbed the chute December 26.
Search teams found 19-year-old Mike Hebert's body but they're still looking for the bodies of 18-year-old Adam Merz and 20-year-old Rod Newberry.
Searchers found two hats in the area, but have not identified them as belonging to the victims.
So far about a foot of snow has melted, but snow depths still range from five-to-24 feet. Yesterday an avalanche occurred in the same chute where the search is taking place, but no one was hurt.
