Please keep the climbers, living and dead; their loved ones; and the SAR crews in your thoughts, all:

If you live in the Pacific Northwest, you probably already know that three experienced climbers were due back from Oregon's highest peak, Mt. Hood, on Friday afternoon.

Tragically, one was discovered dead last night and two remain missing.

As I said, please keep all involved in your thoughts.

The latest information:

[Postscript two hours later: air search will resume today, but due to avalanche warnings, ground search will not. Snowfall is expected to lighten tonight and temperatures are predicted to edge upwards a bit.
