    Ich hoffe Alois bald gefunden wird.

    I think the spelling of Alois' name may need to be amended in the thread here. I think early media reports may have been mistaken in spelling it with a Y.

    Search scaled down. Officials have left and it is volunteers only now, who will search for about two weeks. I do hope they find Alois before they have to stop the search.

    Photos here of the trail. Searching around all those huge rocks takes a long time, I would think.

    This German article is just saying the search is continuing and that police spokesperson Peter Surowski says there is a strong possibility Prof. Krost has fallen among the many boulders on the trail and is injured.

    http://www.volksstimme.de/nachrichte...ht-weiter.html

    I hope he is found soon because things look dark now - he had no food and little water. If the searchers find Alois Krost in the next one or two days, he could survive. The weather in San B has been reported as 'mild' in Germany. Otherwise, I think all hope is lost.

    Does anyone know if altitude sickness is possible on that trail?
