GOVERNMENT CAMP, Ore. (AP) - Rescuers are using a helicopter to search for two climbers lost on Oregon's Mount Hood.
They're 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 on the first pass. 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 the third climber's body Saturday. Sunday's weather forecast calls for slightly warming temperatures with snow tapering off.
