Body found on Mt. Hood thought to be missing hiker
June 29, 2013, 3:52 pm
Early Saturday afternoon search crews working with the
Clackamas County Sheriff's Office located what appears to be a
body on Mt. Hood.
Oregon Army National Guard Blackhawk helicopter crews
provided a location which revealed a body located near the Hood River County
line near the top of the Sandy Glacier. The altitude is approximately 8400 feet.
There were no signs of life. It was not safe at that time to have teams get close
enough to confirm the identity of the subject, but it is believed to be the corpse of Dr. Kinley Adams. The area in which the body was located is on
very difficult and technical terrain, and due to the extreme risk, teams could not get to the area Saturday.
Crews announced that they will launch a recovery team Sunday morning. We will keep you updated.
