Search Effort Receiving Aerial Assistance

Search operations for a missing skier at Mt. Hood Meadows Ski Resort entered a third full day Friday.  Searchers have been looking since Tuesday night for 57-year-old Steve Leavitt of The Dalles.  Hood River County Sheriff’s Sergeant Pete Hughes says they have been assisted in the air Friday by the Sheriff’s office airplane and an Air National Guard helicopter.  He added weather conditions have been more conducive to search operations.  Leavitt was last seen when his ski pass was scanned at 11:20 Tuesday morning on the Heather Canyon Chair Lift.
