Approximately 50 troops of “Socorro Andino, the “GOPE de Carbineros”, guides from “Conaf”, and private companies have all continued the search for Felipe Santos, a 21 year old Brazilian tourist lost in the volcano “Villarricca” in Chile.

The variety of experts has also not been able to find the body of Mexican Rodolfo Sarovich, also a 21 year old, who was traveling along with Santos.

After slipping into a ravine while hiking near the volcano this past Thursday, Santos disappeared immediately while his friend Sarvich was killed upon the impact.

Although these experts and rescue groups have begun to scout the area, the weather has restricted them from preforming any another type of search besides those by land.

News sources also determined that another traveler, Guillermo Elias Obeso, was seriously injured and brought to the German Clinic in the city of Toronto
