IDAHO SPRINGS, Colo. — Authorities have confirmed that the bodies of two people found on Mount Evans are that of a father and son missing since going for a hike in April.

The Clear Creek County Sheriff's Office said Friday that the bodies of Damian and Evan McManus of St. Louis Park, Minnesota were recovered Thursday.
