Just after 8 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 28, 2012, the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office received a call regarding a lost skier on Mt Hood. The skier has been identified as Conor Roland-Chicvara, 22, of Portland, Oregon.
Conor had been skiing at Timberline on Dec. 28 when he called his mother to tell her he was lost. She contacted the Mt. Hood Ski Patrol, who then contacted the Sheriff's Office.
The Sheriff's Office Search & Rescue (SAR) Coordinators were deployed to the area. Using a GPS device Conor had with him and his cell phone, SAR Coordinators were able to determine his position in the Zig Zag Canyon. Timberline Ski Patrol went to the area -- and at approximately 1:30 a.m. on Dec. 29, 2012, the Ski Patrol located Conor.
Conor was not reported to be injured -- and at this point, responding rescue personnel will assess the safest way to get him out of the area. There is an AMR Reach and Treat unit standing by in the area in case they are needed.
