    Search and rescue crews found the body of a Columbia Falls doctor who's been missing since February 17. Dr. Jonathan Torgerson, 62, went missing while skiing in backcountry terrain near the Whitefish Mountain Resort.

    The Flathead County Sheriff's Office says its search crews found his body at 11 a.m. Saturday after resuming the search a few weeks ago. They say it appears he was caught in a small avalanche on the north side of the mountain. A K-9 team was reportedly instrumental in finding Dr. Torgerson's body.
