Lína Móey Bjarnadóttir, the wife of the mountaineer John Snorri Sigurjónsson, has not given up and is still hoping that he will return home.
This is what she says in a post on her Facebook page. Johns Snorri and his teammates, Muhammad Ali Sadpara and Juan Pablo Mohr, have now been missing on K2 for about four days. A search by the Pakistani military has not been successful.
“My love is still being searched and rescued. In my heart he is a miracle and he will come back. I have not given up and know that there is still room for miracles because the week is not over, his camp will be open until Saturday. Those who know John Snorra Sigurjónsson know what a strength he has and I hope that more people out there will give me the wings to try until fully tried, “Lína writes on her Facebook page.
Lína said in a press release yesterday that John Snorri’s family realized that the hope that the group would be found alive in the mountains was very low.
Sajid Sadpara, son of Ali Sadpara, says in article published earlier today that he was still hopeful that his father would return home. Sajid was going to accompany the trio up to the summit, but had to turn around after his oxygen equipment failed. Like Lína, Sajid had previously stated that he was not hopeful that his father and fellow travelers would be found alive.
Search helicopters did not take off today
It was not possible to fly up the slopes of the mountain K2 to search for John Snorri and his companions today due to the weather. There are bad weather forecasts in the area in the next few days, which could make it difficult for searchers, but the authorities have announced that they will continue the search as soon as the weather window opens.
Ashgar Ali Parik, owner of the travel agency that organized the trip Johns Snorri and now also the search, said in communication with the news agency earlier today that search helicopters did not take off due to the weather. Employees of the travel agency will remain in the base camp for another four days.
According to Parik, the government intends to send more people to search the ground and then try to fly C A Hercules aircraft from the Pakistani army, which travels higher than helicopters, over the area.
The news has been updated.
The families of John Snorri Sigurjónsson, Muhammad Ali Sadpara and Juan Pablo Mohr, who have been missing on Mount K2 for about four days, have decided that the search for the trio will continue today. A British-American mountaineer, who went to the summit of K2 with John Snorra last year, is now assisting in the search.
