Search continues for two men near Clemans Mountain

Posted: Updated:

Yakima, WA -    Yakima County Search and Rescue continues to look for two Selah men who have gone missing near Clemans Mountain.

Search and Rescue says a father and his friend left for the mountain yesterday afternoon to try and find his son and the friend he was with.

They were rescued at about eight o'clock last night, but conditions became too dangerous to look for the two men who went looking for them.

Sergeant John Durand says the weather hasn't been any better today.

"We've been facing visibility at times and it's only 25-feet," says Sgt. Durand, "Clouds, rain, high winds...  The warmer temps have made the snow that much more difficult to maneuver through."

But Sergeant Durand is optimistic they are still okay because they left in a four wheel drive jeep and packed food and clothing.
