MOUNT RAINIER NATIONAL PARK, Wash. (AP) – Park officials say it’s too risky right now to send people to search for six climbers who likely fell thousands of feet to their deaths while attempting to scale the 14,410-foot Mount Rainier.

The climbers were last heard from Wednesday evening when the guides checked in with their Seattle-based company, Alpine Ascents International, by satellite phone.

The group failed to return Friday as planned.
