CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Search teams plan to resume looking Saturday for two climbers feared buried by an avalanche in Grand Teton National Park.

Walker Pannell Kuhl of Salt Lake City and Gregory Seftick, a Minnesota native who’s been living in Columbia Falls, Mont., haven’t been seen since last Saturday.

Heavy snow suspended the search for them Thursday and Friday. The weather forecast calls for improved conditions Saturday.

An intense effort Tuesday and Wednesday failed to turn up any sign of the two men. The search is focusing on a canyon on the east side of the Tetons where an avalanche occurred.
