LONGVIEW, Wash. —

Southwest Washington sheriff's officers say a 26-year-old Japanese traveler who may have set out more than a week ago to hike or climb on Mount St. Helens is still missing.

The Cowlitz County sheriff's office said Thursday that officers have been unable to identify a couple who gave Yosuke Onishi a ride on Nov. 27. Sheriff's Chief Criminal Deputy Charlie Rosenzweig says no one has heard from Onishi since then.

Skamania County sheriff's officers flew over the mountain on Wednesday and saw several hikers but none was believed to be the missing man.

Deputies looked at video footage from stores near Cougar, Wash., but have been unable to read the license plate of the vehicle that gave him a ride.

Officers also have contacted the Japanese Consulate, which has been in touch with the man's family. Relatives have not heard from him since he was last seen Nov. 27.
