RIVERTON, Wyo. (AP) - Authorities are searching a Sublette County lake for the bodies of three people who disappeared in 1980.

The Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation, Fremont County Sheriff’s Office and a marine salvage company began the search of Fremont Lake on Thursday.

The lake is as deep as 600 feet in places. Sheriff Skip Hornecker says searchers are using deep-water sonar and diving equipment.

The Riverton Ranger reports (https://bit.ly/ZcSCp2 ) Gerald Uden claimed last year to have dumped the bodies of his ex-wife and her two young sons in the lake north of Pinedale in 1980.

Uden is serving a life sentence in prison after pleading guilty to three counts of first-degree murder in their shooting deaths.



His wife, Alice, is serving a life sentence for the shooting death of a previous husband in the mid-1970s.
