The 75-year-old Spanish woman has been missing since July. Police searched by helicopter in Romsdalseken on Thursday. The search operation is now over.
– Challenging weather in the mountains with snow and difficult search conditions. “We strongly doubt whether it is worthwhile to continue the search now,” police inspector Anders Skorben-Tren told Aftonbosten this afternoon.
He said police are considering whether to call off the search if the weather is mild this fall or resume the search in the spring when the snow melts.
The 75-year-old Spanish woman has been missing since July when she did not return home from a holiday in Scandinavia.
After a while Aftenposten spoke to him NRK The police end the search.
Police were searching for the woman in the mountains near Andalsnes only yesterday.
A police inspector explains that Norway received a message from the Spanish authorities at the end of July that the woman had not returned from a holiday trip.
Investigation revealed that her last place of stay was at the Grand Hotel in Andalsnes.
It was found that his suitcase was lying in the luggage compartment.
Further investigation shows that he may have planned to walk the famous walk on Romsdalschecken.
– But it was only last week that it became clear that it was advisable to search the mountains, says Skorben-Tren.
Found sack with Spanish contents
News of the missing girl came to light on Wednesday.
– After yesterday’s media reports, we received comments from people who were on the mountainside on July 6 and who had sightings of a woman matching the description we visited.
– We also had a bag that someone found in the mountains this summer with content in Spanish. This has strengthened our belief that she had gone to the hills and met with an accident, he said.
Police do not currently have any theories as to what may have happened to the woman. Romsdalseggen is a very popular and busy hiking trail in summer.
– We know from previous experience that if people fall in the mountains, it will be very difficult to find them. Skorben-Tren says there are several stretches of very steep trail, and if you fall, you can fall steeper and farther.
He says that during today’s search the police have seized a lot of images from the mountain area, which they will now analyze.
