Police plan to search for missing woman by boatFRISCO (AP) Police say the search for a missing woman whose delivery truck was found in the Dillon Reservoir will resume by boat when ice on the lake melts.Patricia McCormick, 62, was last seen Nov. 28 when she went on a delivery run for a NAPA auto parts store. Her badly damaged truck was spotted Thursday in 35 feet of water under thick ice.It was pulled from the water on Friday, but a systematic search with an underwater camera on Saturday failed to find any sign of her.Frisco police Sgt. Mark Heminghous said officers will keep an eye on the lake until Spring.Someone will walk by once or twice a day until ice runoff, then well search by boat, he said.After the pickup was discovered in the lake, police said it had likely gone out of control, tumbled over a guardrail and rolled down a steep slope into the water.The Colorado State Patrol Accident Reconstruction Team was at the scene Friday, and the pickup was taken to state patrol garage for a close examination.

Breckenridge to address 6,700 unpaid ticketsIts time to pay those parking tickets.Because of upgraded technology, Breckenridge parking officials will be enforcing a decade-old town ordinance allowing the towing of automobiles with three or more unpaid parking tickets.According to Trish Holcroft, parking operations supervisor, more than 6,700 outstanding parking tickets more than 20 days old are on the books, and about 200 people have more than three and are in tow danger. To the town, the tickets, which date back the last three years, represent more than $134,000, or $20 per ticket.Thats actually conservative, Holcroft said. It doesnt count the $100 handicap violations.Holcroft said they wanted to give locals enough time to pay tickets before the enforcement begins on Saturday, April 15.A lot of people may not know how many they have, she said.The thousands of tickets is striking, even to Holcroft. While the town didnt analyze the exact number of tickets belonging to tourists who fled town, she did look at the history associated with some of the penalties. (Summit Daily News)
