LOS ANGELES, August 22, /ITAR-TASS/. Aviation and a large number of personnel on the ground are looking for the missing 21-year-old Russian student Aleksandr Sagiyev in Wyoming, Khalit Aisin, Consul-Counselor at Russia's Consulate-General in Seattle, told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
The diplomat said, "The missing student's mother, who resides in Nizhny NovgoroDENTd, as well as Wyoming authorities first applied to Russia's Consulate General". "All possible efforts have been made since Monday in a search for Sagiyev, with as many people as possible participating. Aviation is also used.
