Searchers found 26-year-old Luke Gullberg's body on Saturday while searching an area in the 9,000 foot level called Reid Glacier

Vietti is from Longview, Wash. Nolan is from Portland.
     
Search leader Steve Rollins says even if the rescuers knew where the climbers were, search teams would not be able to get to them because of avalanche dangers caused by a heavy snow storm.
     
Rescuers say they don't foresee resuming the search.
     
The climbers have been missing since Friday. Mountaineers found the body of a third, 26-year-old Luke T. Gullberg of Des Moines, Wash., on Saturday.
