With no trace of the two missing French trekkers, Marcel Gorges and Francois, the Himachal Police is now considering to make the locals a part of this search operation. With hopes now fading with each new day, the locals are involved in this search operation. The police is considering to involve particularly the residents from Gaddi (shepherd) community in this search rescue.
The two French backpackers came for trekking in India along with a group of friend. On August 22, they had gone for trekking in the Trinud area, while the others returned; both of them have been missing from that day. The Additional Superintendent of Police (ASP), Kangra, Mohit Chawla stated, “We are considering involving locals in the search operation as they are more familiar with the hills and routes for trekking in India.”
He further informed that a team of policemen and local trekkers has been searching them for past 10 days, but it could not find any clue. Chawla also organized a meeting with the French Consulate, who is at present in Dharamsala in order to supervise the rescue team and also told him about the involvement of locals in the search operation. However, the weather conditions in the state are not stable and this is hampering the search operation.
