PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The search continues Monday for a climber lost on Mount Hood.

The Clackamas County sheriff’s office says the family of the Salem man reported him missing Saturday night and his vehicle was found parked at Timberline Lodge.

The Oregonian reports he’s an experienced climber who is believed to have climbed the mountain before, on the Leuthold Couloir route.

The search began Sunday with volunteers from Portland Mountain Rescue, Mountain Wave Communications, American Medical Response Reach and Treat Team, and Hood River Crag Rats.
