Missing Montana college student found dead in Idaho mountains - Yahoo 2 hours ago
Over the long months that Victoria Mitchell lived in her car with her infant daughter, there was one bright spot in her life: doing laundry.
By Laura Zuckerman SALMON Idaho (Reuters) - A Montana college student whose disappearance prompted a search by hundreds of police and volunteers was found dead from injuries sustained in a car accident in the mountains of central Idaho, authorities said late on Thursday. The body of Lucius Robbi, 21, of Orleans, California, was found in his 1997 Subaru near the remote resort town of Stanley, according to Boise County Sheriff Ben Roeber. Robbi vanished after he set off on Aug. 19 for the University of Montana campus in Missoula from Horseshoe Bend, Idaho, where he had worked as a guide for a second summer at a company that offers trips on the Payette River. Search efforts aided by an online campaign tied to a Facebook page called "Finding Lucius" drew hundreds to hunt for Robbi and his Subaru, with two orange kayaks strapped to its roof, across vast stretches of mountainous terrain in Idaho and Montana.
