Rescuers and volunteers in Chukotka are looking for the missing snowboarder. He rode along an unequipped slope and ended up in a decay under an avalanche near the village of Egvekinot. An aeromobile group of district rescuers arrived at the scene and, together with them, the acting Deputy Governor of the region Viktor Bochkarev.

According to the press service of the regional government, searches have been ongoing for the third day, but so far to no avail. The avalanche was the largest in 35 years. About 200 rescuers and volunteers went with probes to areas where the athlete could supposedly be. Now, according to experts, it is necessary to actively involve heavy equipment.

In the dark, work was suspended. But, early in the morning of December 26, 40 people will again go out in search. The terrain will be examined using a quadrocopter. Three TREKOL bulldozers are involved in the operation. The situation is under the control of the head of the region, Roman Kopin.
