SALT LAKE CITY —

A woman is dead after she tried to walk for help when her car got stuck during the snow storm in southwestern Utah.

Washington County Sheriff's detective Nate Abbott says the woman and a man were driving when their car got stuck in rural Washington County Tuesday night during the storm that hit the Rocky Mountain region.

He says the pair started walking for help, but the woman couldn't go any further and sought shelter while the man continued on.

He eventually took refuge close to a reservoir and stayed there until morning when he located some snowmobilers.

Search and rescue crews who used snowmobiles to look for the woman found her dead in the snow, a few miles from the car.

An autopsy is planned. No names were released.
