On Saturday evening, police and volunteers were searching the Huffslow area.
– We received a tip this morning about a boy in his teens who was last seen at home around 10.30pm on Friday night. Police Chief Sven Inge Harberg says he was not at home early this morning.
The boy was active elsewhere in the Luster municipality on Friday evening.
Helicopters and rescue dogs
The search is being carried out from a fire station in Hufslow. The Police Operations Center said that police contacted friends and acquaintances this morning but this did not lead to anything. As time passed and unrest grew, the police decided to launch a search operation on Saturday afternoon.
– Nearly 40 volunteers have applied. Harberg says we have a rescue helicopter and Norwegian rescue dogs involved in the search.
The police have a little more certainty, but:
– I’m searching in an area with few results on the phone. It’s uncertain, but this is what I have. Anyone with information is urged to report it to the police, Harberg said.
Police have no theory and don’t know why the boy wasn’t in his room this morning.
– Now I will continue until the evening. It’s a bit limited when it’s completely dark, but it can be done at night too. The starting point, says Harberg, is that we search until we find him.
