Rescuers analyzing aerial videos for clues in search for missing B.C. climbers – BC

Rescuers in Squamish, British Columbia, say they have not completely stopped efforts to find three missing mountaineers last seen on May 31, despite temporarily suspending the physical search.

In a post on Facebook, Squamish Search and Rescue says searchers “have changed tactics due to the dangerous terrain and current conditions.”

They say teams have been analyzing video footage obtained from aerial searches using planes and drones in hopes of locating the missing climbers. The terrain where the searches were being conducted is still changing and dangerous as the temperature changes rapidly “from cold to hot.”

Crews suspended search efforts Thursday due to “significant challenges” posed by unstable conditions on Mount Garibaldi, where the three mountaineers were last seen.

Police say the names of the missing are not being released and the climbers’ families are “requesting privacy during this difficult time.”
