Body of missing Brit Aiden Webb found on Mount Fansipan
Search and rescue teams have found the body of missing British climber Aiden Webb on Mount Fansipan, according to Nguyen Quang Vinh, director of the Hoang Lien National Park.
The body was found at 12.45 p.m. local time near cable pylon T4 in Hoang Lien National Park. The scene is being blocked off by the police. The cause of death is still pending further investigation.
Authorities think that Aiden may have died two or three days ago.
“The search team is trying to bring his body out of the forest over a steep terrain. It would take an estimated five hours of walking and climbing before they can reach Sapa. The autopsy will be performed on June 10,” said an official of Lao Cai provincial police.
Aiden Webb, 22, was reported missing on June 4 when he was attempting to climb Fansipan, Indochina’s highest mountain, near Sapa in the northwestern province of Lao Cai.
His aunt, Lisa Shaw Webb, raised the alarm via a widely-shared Facebook post, saying he was last seen on Friday on Mount Fansipan in Hoang Lien National Park. His father and uncle had flown into the country to join the search for the 22-year-old.
