Search Resumes Today for Missing Hikers; 1 Found Dead Yesterday

By  | 

HOOD RIVER, Oregon (AP) - Rescuers in Oregon say they remain hopeful even after getting bad news on Mount Hood.
A body was found Sunday in the area where one of three missing climbers made a distress call last week. The search resumes Monday for the other men.
The body found Sunday has not been identified. It remains on the mountain.
The body was found in a snow cave -- but not the one that was searched earlier Sunday. The second cave was located in the same area as the first snow cave, which yielded a sleeping bag, ice axes and rope.
There has been no communication with the three climbers since December Tenth, when one of the men used a cell phone to call his family.
