Associated Press reported that one of four people missing in an underground West Virginia coal mine has emerged, and officials are sending more search teams to find the others. According to a statement from Gov. Jim Justice on Tuesday, the person who emerged from the mine gave search crews information about their whereabouts. Justice also said a pair of four-man rescue teams would enter the mine, which hasn't been active for two years.

The state Office of Miners' Health, Safety and Training said it began assisting the Raleigh County Sheriff's Office in the search on Sunday after an ATV the four were believed to be riding was found near the mine entrance. The search is at Elk Run Coal Company's Rock House Powellton Mine near Clear Creek.
