GOVERNMENT CAMP, Ore. -- A chaplain for the police and fire departments in Sandy, Ore., says the three young Christians who failed to return from climbing Mount Hood on Friday met through church activities.

The body of 26-year-old Luke Gullberg was found Saturday, but the search continued Sunday for 24-year-old Anthony Vietti and 29-year-old Katie Nolan.

Chaplain Dennis Simons says Nolan has traveled extensively for Christian causes.

Simons has been praying with relatives of the climbers at a ski lodge near Oregon's highest mountain. As the search continued, he said the families are grieving and hoping.
