Steve Leavitt, 57, of The Dalles, Oregon is still missing after he did not return home after a day of skiing Tuesday at Mt. Hood Meadows Ski Resort. KTVZ reports he was last seen when his ski pass was scanned at the Heather Chairlift at 11:20am Tuesday.
Hood River County sheriff’s deputies report after a full day of searching Wednesday no sign of him. Searchers worked until 2am and resumed at 7am. Members of the Mt. Hood Meadows Ski Patrol, The Crag Rats and Portland Mountain Rescue participated in the search which was complicated by high winds and rain followed by snow. A foot of snow has fallen in the last 24 hours.
