Six climbers missing on Mount Rainier


In Washington State, a rescue has now turned into a recovery.
Six climbers missing on Mount Rainier are believed to be dead.

Searchers detected pings from the climbers' emergency beacons Saturday some 3,000 feet below where the group was last heard from.
Authorities don't believe the group would have survived a plunge that steep.

A spokeswoman for the park says it's highly unlikely that the bodies will ever be retrieved because of the tough terrain.
