Damien & Evan McManus Missing near Echo Lake

Here's hoping the Dad's military survival and orienteering skills come to the fore.

"The search for a missing Minnesota father and son continues in the mountains west of Denver, Colo. Tuesday.

Damien McManus and his 18-year-old son Evan — a St. Louis Park High School Senior — were last seen six days ago.

Despite a search involving more than 50 rescuers on foot, snowmobiles, SUVs and a helicopter, there has still been no trace of the father and son. "
