Oregon authorities say rescue teams are getting ready to bring out three people who got lost on a winter camping trip near Mount Hood.

A spokesman for the Hood River County sheriff's office east of Portland says rescuers out Monday morning made contract with the three, who appeared to be in good health.

Detective Matt English says the three set out Saturday on snowshoes and called 911 on Sunday to report they were lost.

The sheriff's office says they reported having food and sleeping bags.

The sheriff's office says one member of the party was reported to have what it called "extensive training and outdoor experience."
