Rescue workers ended their search Tuesday afternoon for two climbers caught in an avalanche Saturday on 2,812-meter Mount Nukedo in Takayama, Gifu Prefecture.

The search will not be resumed Wednesday because of bad weather, local police said, adding they will try to gather information about the missing pair from other climbers.
