More than 50 searchers Monday converged on the foothills south of Portland looking for two teenagers who failed to return from a day hike and were missing after two nights of wet, windy weather.
Deputy Nate Thompson of the Clackamas County sheriff's office said the two are Boy Scouts experienced in the outdoors, but authorities don't know what kind of gear they took with them.
The teens -- Bradley Nelson, 16, and Jackson Chandler, 17, -- left West Linn in suburban Portland on Saturday afternoon intending to hike and return to their car by dark, Deputy Thompson said.
