The body of a Pole who went to the mountains in January and went missing was found by Slovak mountain rescuers. The man was wanted by both Polish and Slovak rescuers, but then the snow made it impossible to act and the operation was stopped after a few days.
As the rescuers from the Slovak Mountain Rescue Service (HZS – Horska Zachranna Służba) informed on Thursday, on Wednesday afternoon the body of a 59-year-old Pole was found, who climbed into the mountains in January and went missing. It was possible with the help of the tracking dog. The body of the man was found between Raczkowa Czuba and Jarząbczy Wierch in the vicinity of the Jamnicka Valley on the Slovak side of the Western Tatras. The remains were transported downstairs.
The action ended on Thursday just after midnight.
The man went missing in January
On January 12 this year, the man left Zakopane with the intention of crossing the border ridge of the Western Tatras. According to the information of the rescuers, he was supposed to follow the blue and red trails from Grześ towards Starorobociański Wierch.
Then the Slovak rescuers confirmed that the wanted person’s phone was logging into the Slovak network. The man was also wanted from the deck of TOPR helicopters and Slovak rescuers.
