The man went skiing at Synnfjellet in Nordre Land.

That person should not be known in that area. In X, the police write that the man should wear skimpy clothes and go cross-country skiing.

– We are running at full capacity. Police and volunteer rescue resources contribute with drones and snowmobiles.

However, the weather will present challenges.
