In a tragic incident, a German snowboarder, who had been missing for several days, was discovered deceased in a ski resort located in the Austrian Alps.
The Vorarlberg police department made a public announcement on Friday, revealing that the 44-year-old, who was a resident of Austria, had been skiing solo in the Bödele ski area on January 20th. After he failed to appear for a scheduled appointment several days later, a missing person report was officially filed.
The missing man’s car was spotted by a parking lot operator at Bödele on Tuesday, triggering a large-scale search operation in the surrounding area. The body of the German snowboarder was located two days following the initiation of the search effort.
The police conjecture that the man may have gotten lost while skiing and ultimately succumbed to hypothermia.
