PORTLAND, Ore. --- Searchers rescued a lost climber on Mount Hood by tracking his phone data.

Rescue crews found 31-year-old Nicolas David Larson of Sunriver early Saturday morning.

He was taken to a nearby hospital for treatment of hypothermia.

Larson was reported missing Friday evening by a friend who had received text messages from him, and the lost climber called 911 a short time later.

Larson said he had reached the summit of Mount Hood on Friday, but became lost in whiteout conditions.

He had protein bars but no water, and told dispatchers that his cell phone battery was about to run out.
