GRAND COUNTY, Utah — Crews in Utah say they have recovered the body of a Colorado man buried in an avalanche.

18-year-old Garrett Carothers was snowmobiling with three others when they were caught in the avalanche in the La Sal Mountain near Moab Saturday morning.

He was the only snowmobiler buried by the avalanche.

Because they were in a remote area, his friends didn’t have cellphone service and had to travel out to get help.

Family members say his body was found around noon Sunday in about 12 feet of snow.
