Authorities have found the bodies of two people near the summit of Oregon's Mount Hood, and they may be a pair of climbers who went missing last year.

Clackamas County sheriff's deputies say they found the remains Thursday after launching an effort to recover a body recently found in a remote area above the timberline.

The first body is believed to be Longview, Wash., climber Anthony Vietti. The second may be one of his companions, Katie Nolan of Portland. But no positive identification has been made.

Vietti and Nolan were climbing with Luke Gullberg of Des Moines, Wash., whose body was found a few days after the group went missing last December.

The recovery team includes members of Portland Mountain Rescue and the Army National Guard.
