FREDRICKA WHITFIELD, CNN ANCHOR: And now we want to take you out to Mount Hood, Oregon, where an extremely different setting there. There on a glacier, Elliott Glacier at the top of Mt. Hood there, you can see those little dots on the screen. Those are actually rescue workers who have responded to reports of a snowboarder who apparently had dropped off the top of the glacier there at about midnight after snowboarding the area with a group of other people.

Somehow, he got separated and had been missing for some time. The rescue crews have since located that snowboarder. He hasn't been moving reportedly. We don't know about his condition, but rescue crews are out there after reaching close to the top of that summit of Elliott Glacier, just outside Oregon, Mt. Hood, Oregon, where they are conducting a rescue mission there now.
