Found in Bavaria – Dead man on Hochstaufen is a missing Salzburger

During a large-scale search on the Hochstaufen in neighboring Bavaria, a dead body was found in a large field of rubble. The suspicion that it was a missing person from Salzburg has now been confirmed.

A 61-year-old man from Oberndorf (Flachgau), who had been missing for several days, was found dead in a steep gully by the crew of a police helicopter during a search operation near Hochstaufen in Bavaria on Wednesday afternoon. The German, who lives in Austria, went on a tour alone last weekend and never returned. He probably did not tell his family members where he was going.

As the Piding border police station in Bavaria announced on Thursday, an observant passer-by reported yesterday that a car with an Austrian license plate had been parked at the Urwies hiking car park for some time.

Big search
Checks revealed that the vehicle owner had been reported missing in Austria. The search was then started. It turned out that the man probably fell on the north side of the summit. His body was recovered by two police mountain guides and two mountain rescue teams.
