In Chukotka, the search for a reindeer herder lost in the tundra more than two weeks ago was completed. The man spent 16 days without food, but he managed to survive and wait for the help of the rescuers.

According to the press service of the regional government, on December 21, the foreman of one of the agricultural enterprises went by snowmobile to the village of Ryrkaipiy. On the way, he called on a satellite phone and said that he was lost due to bad weather.

For more than two weeks, searches have been conducted, including involving a helicopter. The man was found 200 km from his destination in the beam - a light house used for temporary stay. The reindeer herder is healthy and does not need medical help.

Earlier it was reported that the search for a snowboarder who disappeared near the village of Egvekinot in Chukotka was reported, his body discovered 4 January. The man rode on an unequipped slope when he was covered with an avalanche.
