Rainier Officials Suspend Search for Lost on Liberty Ridge

Officials have suspended the search for 50-year-old Rob Plankers on Rainier’s Liberty Ridge. He had been reported with hypothermia. There has been a snow slide in the vicinity of 13,600 feet. He earlier had been spotted on the summit.

Officials say the search was hampered because the party did not have cell phones which would have worked on Liberty Ridge.
