ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: A Special Search and Rescue Mission will be flown on Thursday to K-2 to search for missing Climbers – Pakistani Mountaineer Ali Sadpara, Iceland’s John Snorri, and Chile’s Juan Pablo Mohr – who went missing on February 5 during the Winter Expedition to K-2.
Sources said that the Special Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR) will be used for the Search Mission.
The high altitude climbers are also engaged for the ground search as a result of any location spotted through the FLIR Mission.
All efforts are geared up for the search of the national hero Ali Sadpara and his brave team including John Snorri of Iceland and Juan Pablo Mohr from Chile.
The search for the missing Climbers on K-2 was suspended for Tuesday due to strong winds and snowfall.
The three men were last seen at the Bottleneck barely 400 meters below the K-2 Summit.
