INDICE DE GALERIAS
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Recovery teams will begin to make their way through difficult terrain today to reach a body spotted on Oregon’s Mount Hood during the search for a missing climber.
Avalanche risk from warming temperatures prevented rescue teams from climbing to the upper part of the 11,239-foot peak yesterday.
Authorities say a helicopter spotted the body yesterday near the top of a glacier at around 8,400 feet.
The Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office says officials believe there’s a high probability that the body belongs to Kinley Adams, a 59-year-old Salem dentist who failed to return a June 22 climb of Oregon’ tallest mountain.
Adams is an experienced climber who had been preparing for a trip to Nepal. His mountain locator beacon was found at home, apparently with gear he was planning to take to Nepal.
He was reported missing a week ago.
