GOVERNMENT CAMP, Ore. (AP) - Authorities used a helicopter Sunday to search for two missing climbers on Oregon's Mount Hood and were preparing take rescue and medical teams back to the area on a second try.

An Oregon Army National Guard spokesman says he didn't know if the crew of the UH-60 Blackhawk helicopter had spotted the climbers.

Captain Stephen Bomar says it is "still on ongoing rescue."

The two climbers along with another man went up the mountain on Friday. Crews found a third climber's body on Saturday.

The weather forecast for Sunday called for slightly warming temperatures with snow fall tapering off and chances of improved visibility.
