16-year-old snowboarder from Battle Ground, Wash., spent Saturday night lost on Mount Hood before rescuers found him uninjured Sunday morning.
A fellow snowboarder reported Adam Rogers missing about 9 p.m. Saturday after Rogers didn't meet him in the Timberline Lodge parking lot, said Deputy Angela Brandenburg, spokeswoman for the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office
Rogers' friend Jacob Cumma, 18, of Vancouver told deputies he last saw Rogers at the top of the Palmer chairlift, where they had been snowboarding outside the Timberline boundaries, Brandenburg said.
Cumma told deputies that fog rolled over the slopes as he headed down the mountain. He arrived in the parking lot about 3:30 p.m., but Rogers never showed up.
About 50 searchers stomped onto the mountain at first light, about 5 a.m. Sunday. An Oregon Army National Guard helicopter helped in the search, Brandenburg said.
At 8:50 a.m., a team from Pacific Northwest Search and Rescue found Rogers near Hidden Lake, about three miles from where Cumma last saw him.
"It wasn't looking good there for a while, but it turned out OK," Brandenburg said. "It's dangerous skiing out of bounds"
