Body of missing snowmobiler recovered after avalanche in Beaver County

Beaver County Search and Rescue crews have recovered the body of a snowmobiler who disappeared in an avalanche Thursday evening on Circleville Mountain.

Sergeant Glen Woolsey says three people on snowmobiles were in the bowl area on Circleville Mountain when the avalanche hit.

 A man riding behind the first two said one of the snowmobilers got out from under the snow and waved at him. 

The slide was reported to be a couple hundred feet wide and 200 feet long.
