Three climbers on K2 Mountain go missing, search underway

Searching them, an army helicopter conducted a flight for the missing climbers.

 
Around three climbers have gone missing attempting to summit the world's second-highest mountain, K2, informed their expedition manager and the Alpine Club of Pakistan on Saturday. According to reports, climbers John Snorri from Iceland, Juan Pablo Mohr from Chile and Muhammad Ali Sadpara from Pakistan reportedly lost contact with base camp on Friday.
 
"It's already been more than 30 hours, we (at base camp) have received no news of John Snorri, Ali Sadpara, and Juan Pablo Mohr, since none of the GPS trackers seem to be working", Chhang Dawa Sherpa, their expedition manager, said in a statement.
 
Searching them, an army helicopter conducted a flight for the missing climbers, Sherpa said in a separate statement. "Unfortunately, they cannot trace anything and the condition up in the mountain and even at the base camp is getting poor", he said.
