Body of missing hunter pulled from the Selway River, Bozeman man still missing

Posted: Updated:

The body of one of the four missing bear hunters who vanished into the flood-swollen Selway River last month has been recovered and identified.

Reese Rollins, 22 of Terrebonne, Ore., was one of four men who vanished when their SUV ran off a Forest Service road and into the river about 50 miles west of Darby on the Magruder Corridor Road.

Rollins' stepsister told the Idaho Statesman that Forest Service employees had found his body in the river late Tuesday about 45 miles downstream from where the accident happened on May 21.

Three other men, 21-year old Koby Clark of Bozeman, and brothers Raymond and Jesse Ferrieri, both in their 20s from New York, are still missing.

The search had been called off after a few days by the Idaho County sheriff because of the difficulty in trying to search the fast-moving river. Special equipment had to be brought in to the site to pull the truck from the river to prove the men weren't trapped inside.

Two others in the outfitter-guided party made it safely to shore.

While the Idaho County sheriff investigated the crash, the Ravalli County sheriff helped with the initial response and search because snow was still blocking the Marguder Road over the mountains between the accident scene and Grangeville.
