GOVERNMENT CAMP, Ore. - A search for two missing mountain climbers on Mount Hood has been suspended because of foul weather.
     
Searchers say they haven't given up the search, but they said Tuesday morning there's not much they can do until a storm dumping more than a foot of snow lets up. A spokesman for the rescue operation, Detective Jim Strovink, says the storm could hang on for a couple of days.
     
Searchers found the body of 26-year-old Luke Gullberg on Saturday. The Des Moines, Washington, man died of exposure. The two missing members of the climbing party are 24-year-old Anthony
Vietti of Longview, Washington, and 29-year-old Katie Nolan of Portland.

The trio, longtime friends who'd met through church, according to family, had set out early Friday with plans to summit the mountain and then return mid-afternoon; a 13-hour roundtrip, according to registration documents they'd filed at Timberline Lodge.

Friends and family described them all as "experienced climbers."

Vietti and Nolan could still be alive, rescuers said on Monday, though time was "critical" in finding and saving them.
