Search operation for american mountaineers gains pace as Pakistan deploys special helicopter for rescue
Kyle Dempster and Scott Adamson began their ascent of the 7,285-metre (23,900-foot) Ogre-II peak off the Choktoi Glacier in the Gilgit-Baltistan region of Pakistan on Sunday August 21, but went missing the next day.
“Two helicopters belonging to military aviation flew over the mountains Saturday morning but there was no sign of the climbers, the search goes on” Karrar Haidri, a spokesman for the Alpine Club of Pakistan said.
The helicopter search has been delayed for days because of the adverse weather conditions.
Authorities vowed that a team of local high-altitude rescuers had been searching for the missing mountaineers for almost a week but bad weather has prevented them from ascending the peak.
