Sorry I hope I havent posted in the wrong place, as I am new (also posted in the Europe forum)
Help!! Needing ANYONE with mountain rescue skills who could volunteer in Lake Garda, Italy, (Mountain La Rocca is famous for biking & hiking) to search for my elderly uncle! Can someone please contact me asap - both volunteers or paid mountain rescuers?!
We are extremely worried for the safety and well-being of Felix Marr who has been missing since Friday afternoon (10th August 2012).
He was hiking on La Rocca, a mountain in Lake Garda, Verona, in Italy. That is where police have traced his last text (sms) and where police sniffer dogs also found his scent.
We are appealing to ANYONE who may have seen him between the hours of 3pm and 7.30pm (or later) to come forward with information.
There are a number of interesting sights on the mountain including the remains of a medieval castle, a monastery, and an abbey - plus other look out points where he may have been visiting.
We hope that someone must have seen him during those few hours. Any information or sightings will be vital for our search.
If you were visiting that area, or know anyone that was there during that time - PLEASE help us by spreading the word to find Felix. Thank you very much.
If any other mountaineers want to help please contact the Italian police on 112 quoting ref: FELIX MARR
