Copy-Deputies search southern Wisconsin mine for 3 missing teens

Posted: Updated:

IRON RIDGE, Wis. (AP) - Authorities are focusing their search for three missing boys on a mine near Iron Ridge in southern Wisconsin.

Dodge County Sheriff Dale Schmidt says the three teens were reported missing late Sunday. Schmidt said in a statement Monday that the sheriff's department has no information that anyone has been injured.

Authorities say the area being searched includes old mine tunnels and is heavily wooded, making the search more difficult. The Iron Ridges Mine is in the Neda Iron District.

The sheriff's department planned to release additional details at a news conference Monday.

Iron Ridge is about 50 miles northwest of Milwaukee.
