SNOQUALMIE PASS, Wash. — Search teams are looking for two teenagers who did not return from a snowshoeing trip near Snoqualmie Pass.

King County Sheriff’s Sgt. Ryan Abbott says teams began searching Monday morning for the boys, who are 17 and 18.

He says their parents called 911 Sunday night when they didn’t return from a snowshoeing trip in the backcountry area near Alpental.

Abbott says weather conditions and avalanche dangers prevented a search until Monday morning.
