Our climbers did get inside the snow
cave and have confirmed that there

is one fatality, we do not have the
identity of the individual at this

time.�



Earlier�there was great optimism when
helicopters spotted a snow cave

from the air. However, when ground
crews reached the cave about 300

feet below the summit, they found
climbing equipment but no climbers.

Crews kept searching and later found a
secondary cave in the same area.

(18:55:30)



We continue to proceed with this as a

rescue for the two remaining

climbers.�



There�s been no communication from
Kelly James, Brian Hall and Jerry

Cooke since December 10th��when James
used his cell phone to make a

distress call during a nasty storm.
The weather was so brutal�rescue

teams had to wait several days before
beginning their rescue efforts.



All three are experienced climbers�and
throughout the ordeal their

families remained hopeful searchers
would find the climbers. Now

despite the one fatality�search teams
say they still have a common focus

and remain optimistic they�ll find the
missing men alive.

Ishmael Smith spots up and

pocket for Wake to get Skip Prosser's
team started.

But Markus Sailes had an answer

lane for two off the window. Wake

In the second half, Tech got
out in transition. Zabian Dowdell to
Lewis Witcher for an easy deuce.

Then later, off the turnover
running again, Dowdell gives it up to
Jamon Gordon for the jami-jam and the *CG final Wake Forest foul. That gave Tech the lead for 60 good and the Hokies held on for a 63 to Virginia Tech 60 win.

:00 redshirt freshman quarterback
Ike Whitaker has not practiced the last
two days, due to personal reasons and
indications are that the Germantown,
Maryland product will not accompany the
team to Atlanta later this month.

Whitaker was number 2 on the
depth chart behind Sean Glennon,
playing in five games completing 10 of
16 passes for 119 yards and a
touchdown. If Whitaker stays home,
then Cory Holt would be Glennon's
backup. You'll remember the 19 year
old Whitaker was arrested before spring
practice for purchase and possession of
