    The fears of the family of a British skier, who went missing Sunday, grew after his friends said the 39-year-old told them he was going for “one last run alone” in severe weather in the French Alps. John Promell, from Lincolnshire, was last seen on the Paquis chairlift in the resort of Tignes at a time when the weather was “severe and getting worse.”

    Promell's family and friends were unable to contact the skier, and the authorities also failed to track his phone. The entire Tignes ski area was shut down Monday due to high risk of avalanche caused by extreme winds and heavy snowfall. The search for Promell was also hindered as helicopters were grounded because of dangerous weather conditions. Ground patrols also struggled to move, reports said.
