(Reuters) - An emergency aircraft has been sent to search for 10 "overdue" members of the military on a peak in Colorado's Rocky Mountains, the state Division of Fire Prevention & Control said in a message on Twitter on Friday.

A spokeswoman for the division did not immediately return a call or email seeking comment. It was not clear to which branch of the military the missing personnel are assigned.
