Photos: See mudslide area being searched for Danny Nichols, Clancy Nichols, Wes Hawkins

At this hour, search crews are returning to the scene of a massive mudslide in western Colorado, near the community of Collbran. They're looking for Clancy Nichols, 51, his son Danny, 24, and Wes Hawkins, 46, who were checking out reports of a smaller slide when they went missing.

The Mesa County Sheriff's Office, which is heading up the search operation, has done a fine job of sharing photos and videos from the scene -- and these images offer perspective on the size and scope of the slide and the operation. See a sampling below. In the meantime, our thoughts are with the friends, family and loved ones of Clancy, Danny and Wes.
