Rangers say two bodies recovered from a glacier at Mount Rainier are presumed to be among the four climbers who went missing in January.
The climbers vanished during nasty storms on the mountain, and one body -- that of 37-year-old Mark Vucich -- was discovered last month. Mount Rainier National Park spokesman Kevin Bacher says a helicopter crew ferrying supplies to Camp Muir on Thursday spotted a body hanging over the edge of a large crevasse, buried in about 5 feet of snow.
Climbing rangers aided by a helicopter recovered the body of a woman from the crevasse Friday afternoon and then uncovered a man's body from the snow nearby, at the 8,200-foot level. They returned Saturday to search for the fourth body, and to investigate a snow-buried campsite in hopes of finding clues to what happened.
