STEVENSON, Wash. (AP) - The search is resuming for a Japanese climber who disappeared in November on Mount St. Helens.

The Skamania County sheriff’s office says more than 80 searchers with search dogs and technical mountain search and rescue teams will try to cover 18 square miles of rugged terrain this weekend.

They are looking for 27-year-old Yosuke Onishi who did not return Nov. 27 from a trip to climb to the summit of the volcano in southwest Washington. A search at the time found no trace of him.
