Authorities are expected to reveal the identity of a dead climber found Sunday on Oregon's Mount Hood.

The body will be brought down from the mountain as searchers resume looking for two other climbers who've been missing for more than a week.

Monday's effort will center on possible descent routes, in case the other two got down the mountain that far. Searchers say they remain hopeful about the two missing men.

The body was located in one of two snow caves discovered Sunday. Ice axes, a sleeping bag or pad and rope were found in the other.

The climbers haven't been heard from since one of them used a cell phone to call his family on December 10.
