CNN.com brings us another update today on the two climbers still missing on Mt. Hood. Rescue teams have narrowed their search to a smaller area, and even as they race against time, another storm is bearing down on the region. Brian Hall and Jerry “Nikko” Cooke are still missing, while their companion, James Kelly, was found dead in a snow cave on Sunday.
Even more worrisome, was a camera found on Kelly’s body, which contained images of the three men. The pictures showed the equipment they were carrying with them as they climbed, and experts who have seen those pictures say that it would be tough to survive out there for so long with the light gear they had packed. Still, there is hope that they are in a snow cave of their own, or climbed into a crevasse to get out of the weather. Rescue teams haven’t given up just yet, as the men could still be huddled in a covered crevasse waiting to be found.
