HAMILTON – The Ravalli County Sheriff’s Office is currently assisting in the search for four hunters that went missing in Idaho County, Idaho.

The four hunters went missing after their SUV rolled over into the Selway River on Monday.

Two other hunters that were also in the vehicle at the time of the accident and were able to make it safely to shore.

The cause of the accident is still unknown.

Idaho County Sheriff Doug Giddings says they have had a difficult time getting to the vehicle which has hurt their ability to locate the hunters.

"We haven’t determined yet what caused the accident but the vehicle ended up in the river," Giddings said. "At this point that’s where we are. We cant get to it right now. We are looking at different options, different possibilities at this moment. No, we don’t have somebody out there trying to hook on to it."

The four men were from Georgia and New York and were hunting for bear in the area.
