Search and rescue teams will continue to search for Andris Kalvans on the Snæfellsnes peninsula and Rima Grunskyté Feliksasdóttir near Dyrhólaey in South Iceland today, RÚV reports.

Andris Kalvans went hiking in Heydalur, in the Snæfellsnes peninsula, a week ago. Kalvans is in his fifties and lives in Reykjavík. Search and rescue teams have been searching for Kalvans since last Monday. The search was temporarily suspended yesterday afternoon. As weather conditions are expected to improve, around 100 search and rescue members will resume their efforts today.

The search for Rima Grunskyté Feliksasdóttir, who has been missing since before Christmas, will also continue. Rima is believed to have fallen into the ocean by Dyrhólaey promontory in South Iceland. Rima had recently moved to Hella from Vík í Mýrdal.
