Lahore, 7th February: A search operation by Pakistan Army continues for the mountain climber Muhammad Ali Sadpara and his team who set out to marl the winter ascent of world second-largest peak, K-2.

As per reports, Sadpara and two other mountaineers John Snorri from Iceland and Juan Pablo Mohr from Chile had gone missing on Saturday after which a search operation to recover them was set in motion.

Saturday afternoon the helicopters flew to a height of 7,000 metres in their attempt to locate the missing mountaineers but were unable to find any clue to their whereabouts.

Two days ago it was reported that Sadpara and his team had successfully summited the 8,611-metre K-2 late Friday, a month after their first attempt failed.

However, their support teams had cautioned that the climbers’ status is still unclear and there has been no communication from their end.

As per reports from Geo News, Waqas Johar, Assistant Commissioner Shigar, Gilgit-Baltistan, confirmed on Saturday afternoon that there has been no success in finding the missing mountaineers so far and that weather conditions are not good at K2.

Waqas further tweeted, “Sajjid Sadpara has reached k2 Camp 1.”

Baaghi TV reported earlier that Sadpara, Snorri and Mohr departed for their journey late on Wednesday, and asked fans and admirers to ‘keep us in your prayers.

On Friday they had started their attempt for the final summit hoping to accomplish the impossible mission by Friday afternoon.

According to updates posted on Snorri’s Facebook account on Friday, at 12:29 pm, the GPS stopped working and had not updated in six hours.

It stated that Ali Sadpara’s son Sajid had to return to the base camp as his oxygen regulator was not working.
