SELWAY BACKCOUNTRY – The body of a second man who vanished into the Selway River while on a bear hunting trip last month has been recovered.
This latest discovery comes just a couple of days after the first hunter was found miles downstream from where the party’s SUV crashed into the Selway River.
22-year-old Reese Rollins of Terrebonne, Ore. was one of four men who vanished when their SUV ran off a Forest Service road and into the river about 50 miles west of Darby on the Magruder Corridor Road.
Rollins’ stepsister tells the Idaho Statesman that Forest Service employees had found his body in the river late Tuesday about 45 miles downstream from where the accident happened on May 21st.
Idaho County Sheriff Doug Giddings tells us the body of a second hunter was recovered Thursday even further downstream and outside the wilderness area. His family has been informed but a name hasn’t been released.
The three other missing men are 21-year-old Koby Clark of Bozeman and brothers Raymond and Jesse Ferrieri, both in their 20s from New York.
Two others in the outfitter-guided party made it safely to shore.
