LEADVILLE, Colo. (AP) - Lake County officials say rescuers tried to revive a U.S. Forest Service ranger who was found after he was reported overdue while skiing near Turquoise Lake near Leadville.

Lake County spokeswoman Betty Benson says dozens of rescuers were called in after two skiers, including an unidentified boy, were reported overdue from a Wednesday ski trip and could not be found.

The Lake County Office of Emergency Management posted on its Facebook page that Brett Beasley did not survive after the pair was found on Thursday. The condition and identity of the youth was not available.

According to the Denver Post (https://tinyurl.com/h8q7544), Beasley was a U.S. Forest Service ranger who managed recreation projects for the San Isabel National Forest’s Salida Ranger District.
