    UT - Mark Widegren, 28, & Brian Axe, 28, Price, 28 Jan 2012

    http://www.ksl.com/?nid=148&sid=1909...cid=featured-1

    Widegren and Axe, who are from Grand Junction, Colo., left the Silver Dollar about 11:30 p.m. in a gold-colored Jeep Grand Cherokee, Hendricks said.

    "Since that time, there's no evidence of where they are or what they're doing," the deputy said.

    The men's bank accounts have not been touched, nor have investigators been able to pick up signals from the men's cellphones.

    So I hurried and looked at this before I ran out the door Friday because it's in Utah and I was going to be driving 4 hours round trip...
    Gold Jeep Grand Cherokee... fabulous, what YEAR?!?
    I didn't have time, I was already late and I ran out the door.

    Of COURSE... I had to see a GOLD Jeep Grand Cherokee while I am driving and not really looking because I was busy.
    Fortunately I have a brother who understands why I called him and said "I need you to go to the missing facebook page and find out what year this is ASAP."

    Just for the record... they are in a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee - according to the flyer:

    http://a3.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphot...47483225_n.jpg

    It would be really nice if they would include the YEAR in news article... a 1993 and 2003 look drastically different... and many people know that.
    Since plates can be switched... that isn't enough to prevent me from calling in a tip if everything else matches.

    Hopefully tomorrow's search yields positive results. I agree with the majority that a vehicle accident is the most likely.

    No trace of missing pipeline workers, searchers keep looking

    "We've flown and flown and flown and have nothing," Hendricks said Friday. "Bottom line is we have nothing more than we had yesterday."

    Media reports about the vehicle the men were driving have generated some tips, the deputy said. Those were being tracked down by investigators with the state Department of Public Safety.

    "So far, none of those leads have panned out," Hendricks said.

    Family of missing men grateful for volunteer Utah searchers

    Axe spoke with his wife Saturday night before he and Widegren went to Wingerís restaurant to have dinner. Later, the two went to watch a game at the Silver Dollar Sports Club and closed their $40 tab at about 11:30 p.m. The rest is unknown.

    "They both went out the front door [of the bar] and just kind of vanished," Woolery said.

    She found out her son and Widegren, who is a recent brain cancer survivor, were missing several days later when on Tuesday a co-worker noticed the two natural gas pipeline construction workers employed by WC Striegel Co. didnít show up for work.

    Dozens of volunteers turn out to search for men missing near Price as promising lead falls through


    Snipped........................................... ..........................................
    Axe and Widegren, both 28, ate at Winger's Bar & Grill in Price, then went up the road a few miles to the Silver Dollar Sports Club. They had a few more drinks while they watched a game, leaving the club about 11:30 p.m. in a gold-color Jeep Grand Cherokee.

    Snipped........................................... .......................................

    Friday night, Carbon County sheriff's deputies and Emery Telecom crews were able to identify a cell tower in Price that had been in constant contact with the men's cellphones for three hours after they left the club. Officials believe the connection ended when the batteries died in the phones or they were shut off, because none of the other cell towers in the area picked up the men's phones.

    It's been a week since these men became missing.
    I wonder if they took a wrong turn somewhere and went off the road and the searchers may be looking in the wrong area?
    What was the weather like that night?

    The phones were pinging off of the same tower for 3 hours. Are they basing their search efforts on this information?

    They ate, drank, then disappeared. Where were they staying in relarion ro rhe sports bar?

    There is actually quite a bit of traffic in 9 mile canyon. I hope that people are keeping a close eye on any marks in the road.

    Do you think we can get the location of their "mancamp" where they were living while building the pipeline?

    I am thinking if they were lost they would have tried to call someone? Don't know enough about phone pinging to know if they ping only when you try to use them??? Or do they ping every few minutes just because they are turned on??? I don't know, but seems like they may have been overpowered or something. Otherwise they would have used their phones to call someone. Is there any illicit drug activity in this area? It seems awfully remote and rugged terrain here. What are the people like in this town? Blue collar workers? Laborers? poor? affluent? in-between? Were they flashing money around at the bar? Just thinking out loud...

    So looking at cell phone towers in and around Price, Ut here:

    http://www.cellreception.com/towers/towers.php

    It shows a tower outside of Wellington, UT wich is the same way they would travel if heading back towards 9 mile canyon. It is the only one I can find after that there is none.

    I have a thought of two things here, they drove away from the bar got lost and wrecked off the road somewhere trying to get back to their base, or someone may have robbed/mugged them coming out of the bar took them and the vehicle and you know the rest of the story. It is odd to me that both cell phones according to the article I posted above showed no cell pings after three hours like the battery either died or was taken out.
    What are the chances that both cell phones would do that at the same time ?

    Search for Missing Men Continues in Utah

    SNIPPED........................................... ..................

    Widegren's family tells us they focused in on a specific area Saturday.

    "It's very rugged. There's canyons, wooded areas, rough roads, boulders, snow-pack," Todd Widegran

    http://www.kjct8.com/news/30381568/detail.html

    I wish we knew what area they were focusing on

    The men had been laying pipe in Nine Mile Canyon northeast of Price and living in a man camp in the canyon. Their cellphones and credit cards haven’t been used since the night they disappeared.

    However, a late Friday-evening post to a Facebook page created in connection to the search indicated an analysis of cellphone data has revealed both phones last communicated with a tower that targets a specific swath of land that includes the town of Price.
