Three missing in Colorado mudslide

GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (AP) – Three people are reported missing in a massive western Colorado mudslide while rescue teams search gingerly because of the unstable earth.

The slide hit yesterday in a remote area about 40 miles east of Grand Junction.

The Mesa County Sheriff’s Department estimates the slide is about 4 miles long, 2 miles wide and about 250 feet deep in many places.
