Two bodies were found by hikers near Mount Evans on Thursday morning, according to the Clear Creek County Sheriff's Office.
Two Minneapolis-area television stations say a family spokesperson has confirmed that they are the remains of Damian McManus, 51, and Evan McManus, 18, a father and son from Minnesota who were last known to be hiking near the mountain in April.
"Even though we have been cut in half by snow and by this mountain, we are whole in spirit, love, faith and a lifetime of memories," Katherine McManus, matriarch of the family, said in a Facebook post last week.
The bodies were being recovered by Alpine and Rocky Mountain Rescue teams. The remains will be turned over to the county coroner's office for official identification, the sheriff's office said in a news release.
The discovery comes as four Minneapolis-area firefighters finished a Colorado visit to search for the Minnesota father and son who went missing in the Mount Evans while hiking in April. It is still unclear if the firefighters were the ones who located the remains.
The firefighters — from St. Louis Park, Edina and Eden Prairie, Minn. — arrived in Colorado on Tuesday and were planning to end their trip Thursday.
Damian and Evan McManus went missing April 2 after telling a friend they were going to scale a Colorado peak during a father-son spring break trip. Their car was later found at Echo Pake Campground near the base of Mount Evans.
Official search teams looked for the pair for roughly four days despite 3 feet of snow and the threat of avalanches.
