The Carbon County Sheriff’s Office resumed their search Saturday morning for two natural gas pipeline workers who have been missing for a week.

Mark Widegren and Brian Axe, both 28 years old, were last seen at a Price steakhouse last Saturday night. The pair was last spotted driving a Jeep Grand Cherokee with Colorado license plates.

They live in a crew camp in remote Nine Mile Canyon, where the search is underway. Sheriff’s deputies say the two are friends and coworkers from Grand Junction, Colo.

Anyone with information about their whereabouts is asked to contact the Carbon County Sheriff’s Office at 435-636-3751.
