MOSCOW, June 29, /ITAR-TASS/. Fifteen tourists from Irkutsk who went missing in Russia’s flood-stricken Buryat Republic have been found, local law enforcers told Tass.
“Fifteen people, 8 of whom are children, have been found. They are all alive,” the source said. A tourist group, including eight orphans from children’s home as well as eight adults went on a three-day trip upstream the Kyngara River on June 27. They left the Arshan village which was under flooded on June 28.
The last radio contact with the group was on June 27, the Siberian regional center of the Russian Emergencies Ministry said on June 27. A search operation started afterwards.
The Irkutsk tourists did not register themselves with a rescue service and did not discuss the route with rescuers.
