MOSCOW, September 14 (Itar-Tass) — Mountaineers who had lost their way in the mountains of North Ossetia were found, the republican emergency situations department told Itar-Tass on Friday.
The North Ossetian rescue unit was told in the morning that three men, who went climbing Mount Shau-Khokh, did not make the planned radio contact on time. A climber’s wife told the rescuers the ascent was supposed to end on September 11 but the families heard nothing since then.
“A search party bumped into the climbers who had lost their way at 4:00 p.m. Moscow time. Their condition is stable,” the department said.
