Two people remain unaccounted for after an avalanche Sunday near the mountain villages of Lech and Zurs in Austria, according to the Austrian Press Agency.

At least two people were also injured in the fallen avalanche, the press agency reports. One of the injured was taken to a clinic in Innsbruck, and the other was taken to the hospital in Bluedez, the agency reported.

Rescue workers initially feared 10 people were missing in the avalanche based on video footage taken by a skier just before the avalanche.

The video appeared to show about 10 more skiers in the path of the avalanche, but ended before showing what happened to the skiers, Hermann Ferher of Lech/Zürs-Tourismus said, according to the news agency.

Rescuers assumed that all the skiers in the video were lost in the avalanche, the agency reports.

Vorarlberg province’s security adviser said he was optimistic the two missing men would be found, the agency reported.
