RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — Authorities have resumed the search for a hunter who has been missing for nearly a week in western South Dakota.


A Pennington County sheriff's spokeswoman says search and rescue workers resumed looking for 66-year-old Larry Genzlinger on Monday after taking Sunday off and searching through snow on Saturday.


She tells the Rapid City Journal that authorities hope to find Genzlinger before more snow arrives.


Genzlinger, who is from Howard, was last seen on the afternoon of Oct. 1. He and his nephew separated to hunt for elk near Deerfield Lake, but Genzlinger never returned to their meeting spot.


Authorities say Genzlinger is diabetic and likely has been without food and insulin.

Speeds top 100 mph in pursuit of teen driver

BOX ELDER, S.D. (AP) — Sheriff's officials say a 16-year-old girl who stole a car and led deputies on a chase was injured when she crashed the vehicle in Pennington County.


Authorities say speeds reached in excess of 100 miles per hour before the girl crashed on Interstate 90 near Box Elder Monday after deputies laid down stop sticks to deflate the tires. The vehicle landed on its side with its roof torn off.


The Rapid City Journal says the girl was taken to the hospital to be treated for her injuries. Officials say she stole the car in Hutchinson County.
