June 22, 2008 — The search continues for a 56-year-old woman who went missing in Beaver Creek Friday, but the mission has been deemed a "recovery" after two days of searching, according to the Eagle County Sheriff's Office.
Search and rescue officials have utilized mounted horse patrol units, water rescue crews, search and rescue dogs, a one-man boat, and aviation assistance from the Colorado National Guard High Altitude Aviation Training Center (HAATS).
But there was no sign of Mary Brake, a prominent Lincoln, Neb., realtor. Brake reportedly fell into Beaver Creek while horseback riding with a local outfitter.
Search efforts began immediately following a 911 call that came in to the Vail Public Safety Communication Center at 6:11 p.m. and have continued through Sunday.
Blake was reportedly on a ride with an outfitter that provides rides to Beano’s Cabin, a restaurant on the ski mountain. The horse Blake was riding lost its footing and she fell into the creek. The horse was recovered further downstream and suffered minor injuries.
More information will be available as rescue operations continue.
