    A rescue mission has been launched for ten active duty Army personnel who have gone missing on Longs Peak in Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado.

    The announcement about the missing military personnel was made on Friday by the Colorado Division of Fire Prevention and Control.

    The group reportedly requested assistance on Thursday evening, while participating in climbing training that some members were having difficulty with. They were not expected to stay in the area overnight.

    The area has little mobile phone service, which the Division of Fire Prevention and Control has asserted may make their efforts to find the group difficult. They have deployed 43 park personnel as well as helicopter operations.
