Authorities say chances are slim that two hikers lost on Oregon's Mount Hood are still alive.
Twenty-four-year-old Anthony Vietti and 29-year-old Katie Nolan have been missing since Friday. Officials have said the hikers are likely dead and the search for the two will no resume anytime soon, because of severe avalanche danger.
A harsh winter storm is preventing rescuers from searching the mountain.
"We can't get people off the ground.. Our hands are really tied," Steven Rollins, a rescue leader said. "If there is anything we could do, we would do it."
Even if the rescuers knew where the two climbers were, search teams would not be able to get to them because of the danger, Rollins said
The climbers' family's are asking people to pray for the weather to clear up
On Saturday, rescuers found the body of their climbing partner Luke Gullberg. Officials have said he died of hypothermia after surviving a long fall.
All of the hikers are all Christians who have served around the world as missionaries.
