GRAND COUNTY, Colo. — Emergency responders checked an area where an avalanche occurred Wednesday in Grand County and determined that no one was buried in the slide despite earlier reports that two people were possibly caught in the slide.

The initial report was that two people were possibly involved in the avalanche, but that turned out to not be true, according to the the sheriff's office.

Deputies with the sheriff's office, Grand County Search & Rescue, EMS, Flight for Life and the Winter Park Ski Patrol Dog Team assisted with the search.

They searched from the air and ground using tools including an avalanche dog team and avalanche beacons and determined there were no victims.

They also found that tracks seen entering the slide were confirmed to have come out at another location.

Another avalanche was reported earlier Wednesday on Loveland Pass where one car was caught but no one was hurt, according to the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT).
