Rescue Team Searches for Tourist in Eyjafjallajökull Volcano

A group from recue squad Landsbjörg is on Eyjafjallajökull volcano on Thursday night to search for a foreign hiker who got separated from his partners on Wednesday afternoon. The area is quite difficult to pass and visibility is low.

The three men are all foreign and experienced mountaineers. One of them got down from the glacier yesterday, and a second stayed overnight in a hut in Fimmvörduháls. The three intended to walk from the hut to the crater in Eyjafjallajökull yesterday.
