PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A snowmobiler found 4 family members who went missing after going to play in the snow on Mount Hood Saturday night.
April Martinez told KOIN 6 News her stepson, 2 sons and her niece had gone up to the mountain for the day and had not been heard from since late Saturday night.
