PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Rescuers were resuming a search Sunday for a snowboarder who was buried in a collapsing ice tunnel on Oregon's Mount Hood.

The snowboarder was traveling with five companions when the collapse hit Saturday afternoon, officials said.

The other five, all in their 20s, were uninjured and called police. They also attempted to dig the man out, but were unable to break through thick snow and ice.
