    That's somewhat good news. It means that conditions were still very bad high on the mountain and the stranded climbers may have just stayed in their snow caves.

    BREAKING NEWS: Searchers find signs of climbers
    A helicopter surveying the Mount Hood summit this morning has captured images of what appears to be a snow cave, scattered equipment and what looks like frozen tracks in the snow.

    Search organizers plan to airlift pararescuers to the summit by helicopter so they can make their way to the area by foot.

    Default Thanks Brad for update

    Just got in from being out all day and saw the update from Brad. Thanks. I will now log on to climbers forum and get the upto the minute news on this.
    Looks like weather today is best yet. Yesterday winds were still high near the summit and there were white out conditions with HIGH ava conditions. Today is the day if they are to come out of this alive. May god bring them off the mountain safe and sound. Thanks again Brad and keep up the positive vibes!!!!

    Does anybody have a reliable internet feed to live video? All I have is the katu.com live feeds during news conferences, nothing else.

    Somew of the reports have said that some of the equipment, ie, climbing ropes may have been from other hikers one report said. I just pray that is the ropes of the 3 missing hikers and they can find them safely.
