Search for Mt. Hood climber continues

PORTLAND, Ore. -- The family of a climber lost since Saturday on Mount Hood is holding out hope he'll be found alive.
The search continues for Kinley Adams, a 59-year-old dentist from Salem. But searchers were frustrated Monday and Tuesday by white-out conditions. They're hoping for clearing weather. A National Guard helicopter is on standby.
Adams' wife, Lorraine, and two sons went to the mountain Tuesday. They told reporters they're optimistic Adams is alive in a snow cave.
Most climbers summit the mountain about 50 miles east of Portland in the spring. Climbing the 11,239-foot mountain becomes riskier as warming temperatures melt ice and loosen rocks.
