On Feb. 16, 2021, a rescue attempt was made to recover the bodies of the two men thought to be under the ice on the Marias River in Southeast Toole County. The Toole County Sheriffs Office, with the assistance of the Cascade County Sheriffs Office, Cascade County Search and Rescue, Flathead County Sheriff's Office, Toole County Search & Rescue and Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks, made the recovery.
The suspected location was opened in the ice and two divers entered the water, located and brought the bodies to the surface. The bodies of the two men will be taken to the Montana State Crime Lab by the Toole County Coroner.
The two men had been reported missing on Feb. 9, 2021, when a side by side they were traveling in did not return to camp. A friend followed the tracks that he found and noticed that they ended in open water on the Marias River. Severe weather conditions at the suspected location hampered any effort for responders to safely make any immediate recovery.
