Father of missing climber not angry at Mount Hood

Posted: Updated:

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - The father of a climber missing and presumed dead on Mount Hood says he bears no grudge against the mountain for taking his daughter.

David Nolan, father of 29-year-old climber Katie Nolan of Touchet, says he considers Mount Hood to be majestic and beautiful, and the family's religious faith has given them "a peace about Katie."

Meanwhile, authorities say they have officially suspended the search for her and 24-year-old Anthony Vietti of Longview. Searchers have been able to do little during a snow storm the past two days.

Nolan, Vietti and 26-year-old Luke Gullberg of Des Moines started climbing Friday, but rescue workers suspect they had an accident. Gullberg's body was found Saturday.
