LAST EDITION -f_ HOPE RAISED FOR LOST PAIR WHEN AIRMEN LOCATE SCOW No Trace of Idaho Couple Found Yet In Grand Canyon BOAT IS IDENTIFIED It May Have Got Away From Hydes In Navi- gating Rapids GRAND CAXYOX, Ariz., Dec. by army airplane searchers of a home-made scow stranded on the banks of the turbulent Colorado river dissolved some of the mystery today regard- ing the disappearance of Mr. am'. Mrs. Glenn Hyde, who had at- tempted to navigate the dangerous stream for the sake of a thrill. The scow, tentatively identified as that which Mr. and Mrs. Hyde of Hansen, Idaho, were using in their adventure, was located yes- terday by Lieutenants W. G. Plum- mer and John Quincy Adams, March field, California, 13 miles below Diamond Creek, Ariz. ANSWERS DESCRIPTION 3n a. later flight over iho stranded scow, one of the planes carried Emery C. Kolb, experienced Colorado river explorer, and upon their return last night both the" aviators and Kolb asserted that the scow answered the description of the craft used by Mr. and Mrs. Hyde. It appeared intact and con- tained supplies similar to .those known to have been carried by the 'The fliers expressed the opinion that it had gotten out -its 'strand- ed after floating downstream. Plummer and Adams piloted their planes for 247 miles along- the treacherous river, and they were only 50 feet above tha water when they sighted the craft. They re- ported freezing temperatures in the canyon depth's, which foretold hardship for the stranded couple. SEARCH CONTINUES Today the search conducted by the planes and by a river party, consisting of P. M. Papraw of the Grand Canyon national park staff; Robert Francy and Jack Hardin, was being consolidated. The army planes were making contact with the searching party in the canyon directing them to proceed toward Diamond Creek in an effort to locate footprints. The thrill seeking couple were two weeks overdue at Needles, Calif., their next planned stop, when the scow was located. Hyde's father, H. C. Hyde, here to direct the search, has offered for discovery of the pair. The Fundamentalists!
