Southeast police district reported the search operation at half past nine on Saturday night. The man had then not met at the agreed place and time.
– It is considered unjustifiable to initiate a full-scale search on the high mountains under prevailing weather conditions. It is continuously assessed in what way we can still search the road network and relevant areas with rescue crews, the operations center wrote.
Night to Sunday, operations manager Erik Gunnerød informs VG that the operation was terminated due to the safety of the search crews.
– It will be resumed and there will be a change of crew when it brightens and hopefully the weather is better, he says.
