NALSHIK, March 3 (Itar-Tass) —— Three mountaineers from two Ukrainian cities – Kharkov and Dnepropetrovsk – went missing on a slope of Mont Elbrus, at an altitude of about 5,200 meters on Friday. A team of seven rescuers and one doctor is searching for them, the chief of the Alpine Elbrus search and rescue team of Russia’s Emergency Situations Ministry, Boris Tilov, told Itar-Tass.
“Two Ukrainian groups – eleven mountaineers all in all – were making the ascent. On the way back three persons lagged behind, and the groups’ leaders noticed their absence at an altitude of 3,800 meters and warned the rescue service at once,” Tilov explained.
He added that the alarm call came at about 21:00 Moscow time.
The rescuers will be able to get to the place where the hikers went missing no earlier than Saturday morning, even if they make part of the way on an Alpine rover.
