Search under way for missing hunters



     RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - Search and rescue teams are looking for two hunters missing in western South Dakota.
 
     The Pennington County Sheriff's Office says 74-year-old Gary Wipf and 83-year-old Clifford Wipf were last seen turkey hunting in the Deerfield Lake area Sunday afternoon. 
 
     Authorities are asking residents who may have information about the hunters' whereabouts to contact the sheriff's office.
 
     Gary Wipf is described as 5 feet 6 inches tall, 190 pounds, bald with blue eyes. Clifford Wipf is described as 5 feet eight inches tall, 160 pounds, bald with blue eyes. Their vehicle is a red Toyota SR5 shortbed pickup truck with topper and South Dakota license plates.
 
     Weather conditions have complicated the search. Many roads were only accessible by snowmobile and authorities were unable yesterday to search for the hunters by air.
