Search and rescue crews at Mt. Hood just rescued a missing 26 year old snowboarder, missing since Sunday afternoon. Crews from Deschutes County helped in the rescue along with other agencies. Detective Jim Strovink from the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office says the snowboarder got disoriented in the blinding snow as he descended from the summit of Mt. Hood Sunday afternoon. “We've had ground searches throughout the night. We have had communication with him this morning, however his battery is failing.” An Oregon Air National Guard helicopter just pulled the snowboarder to safety. He spent the night near Timberline Lodge on Mount Hood in below-freezing temperatures. He found shelter under a tree.
