Authorities hope clearing weather will help them find a 62-year-old hiker who has been missing in the San Bernardino Mountains since just before the start of the weekend's storms.
Rescuers on foot, snowmobiles and in a helicopter searched Monday for Dean Christy near the Green Valley Lake resort community about 75 miles east of Los Angeles.
San Bernardino County sheriff's spokeswoman Arden Wiltshire says up to 3 feet of snow accumulated in the hills where Christy is thought to be lost.
Green Valley Lake is at an elevation of about 7,200 feet.
Authorities say Christy left his weekend home in the area Friday afternoon.
Searchers last had cell phone contact with him early Saturday.
