Body Found in Mount Hood Snow Cave

By  | 

Teams looking for three missing climbers on Mount Hood in Oregon have found a body after searching a second snow cave near the summit.

A spokesman for the Hood River County Sheriff's Office says the body has not yet been identified. Another sheriff's spokesman says, "Our hearts are going out to the families right now." He says it's not yet known how the body will be brought down from the mountain.

Kelly James, Brian Hall and Jerry Cooke have been missing for more than a week.
