HOOD RIVER, Ore. (AP) - The search resumed early Tuesday for a Polish military man who failed to return from an attempt to summit Oregon's Mount Hood.
Hood River County sheriff's Sgt. Pete Hughes says searchers plan to use a helicopter with equipment that can identify a signal from an international cellphone.
Hughes says 32-year-old Sebastian Kinasiewicz (kihn-AH'-suh-vich) was reported missing Monday after he failed to return from Sunday's climb on the roughly 11,000-foot mountain. Crews found his car at a trailhead, but he remained missing after a daylong search Monday.
He carried warm clothing but wasn't equipped to stay out overnight - no sleeping bag or food. Hughes says conditions have been survivable.
Kinasiewicz has been in the United States for drone training at the Insitu (in-SIT'-yoo) company in Bingen (BIHN'-jihn), Wash.
