Lost Washington snowboarder found safe on Mount Hood

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A missing snowboarder who was lost overnight on Mount Hood has been found in good condition.

Clackamas County Sheriff's Office says 29-year-old Curtis Lawrence Dahl, of Tacoma, Wash. was located at about 9:30 a.m. Sunday fatigued but safe.

Searchers worked through the night to find Dahl after his two friends reported him missing Saturday afternoon. The three had been boarding above Timberline Lodge, but the friends hadn't been able to find Dahl after returning to the lodge.

Rescue workers discovered footprints around 6 a.m., and Portland Mountain Rescue volunteers found Dahl near Enid Lake a few hours later.

Pacific Northwest Search and Rescue, Mountain Wave Communications, Hood River Crag Rats, Benton County and American Medical Response also assisted in the search.
