3 bodies spotted on Mt. Rainier where climbers went missing

The Associated Press

OLYMPIA — National Park officials say what appears to be three bodies have been seen on Mount Rainier in the location where six climbers went missing earlier this season.

Park spokeswoman Patti Wold told The Associated Press on Tuesday that the bodies were seen during a helicopter flight last week. She says the park is trying to determine how best to recover them without endangering rescuers.

The two guides and four climbers are believed to have fallen 3,300 feet during their climb in the last week of May. It’s unknown whether a rock fall or avalanche was to blame.

During the initial search, crews found gear and detected signals from avalanche beacons buried in the snow at the top of the Carbon Glacier at 9,500 feet.
