Missing hiker found dead on Mount Washington

Associated Press

PORTLAND, Ore. – Authorities say searchers have found the body of a missing hiker on Mount Washington on Saturday.

Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office released a statement saying searchers on an Oregon Army National Guard helicopter spotted the body of Brian Robak. It appears Robak fell from near the top of the mountain.

The Big Lake Youth Camp called the Sheriff’s Office early Friday to report one of their contractors was overdue from hiking alone.
