It snowed nearly every day after the two were last heard from, for more than a week. Temperatures sank well below zero every night. And the winds whipped at 20 to 40 mph.

Officials issued statements saying that the two could not have survived for more than a week in the frigid wilderness, and officials searches were called off. Unofficial searches kept on with volunteers hoping to bring the men’s bodies home.

A fund has been established to help the family. Donations can be sent to Citizens Independent Bank, c/o McManus Family Fund, 5000 W. 36th St., St. Louis Park, MN 55416
