KELLOGG, Idaho (AP) – One person remains missing at an Idaho resort near where an avalanche on Tuesday killed two skiers and injured four others.

The Silver Mountain Resort near the town of Kellogg was closed Wednesday to focus resources on the search.

Resort officials say the ski patrol, aided by dog units, conducted a search and has not found the missing skier.
