3 mountaineers missing in Russia’s Far East

3 mountaineers missing in Russia’s Far East

Three mountaineers have gone missing after a heavy snowstorm in the Kamchatka region in the Russian Far East. Their friends, who were sheltering from a snowstorm in the mountains, told rescuers they disappeared on Saturday.

Rescuers say a helicopter will be sent on a search operation on Monday if the weather allows.  

The climbers were two and a half thousand meters above sea level.

The group was forced to change its route when one of the volcanos there became active.
