CENTRAL UTAH AUTHORITIES ARE TRYING TO FIND THE PERSON, OR PEOPLE, RESPONSIBLE FOR VANDALIZING A POPULAR ROCK ART PANEL, NORTHEAST OF PRICE.

OFFICIALS WITH THE "COLORADO PLATEAU ARCHAEOLOGICAL ALLIANCE" SAY, PROPERTY OWNERS VISITED THE SITE -- OVER THE HOLIDAY WEEKEND -- AND FOUND LETTERS ETCHED INTO THE ROCK, NEAR AN IMAGE OF A PREGNANT BUFFALO.

THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE VISIT THE ROCK ART PANELS -- IN NINE MILE CANYON -- EACH YEAR.

THE IMAGES ARE BELIEVED TO DATE BACK TO THE FREMONT PERIOD, MORE THAN A THOUSAND YEARS AGO.
