An eight-year-old child was found after four days' missing in mountains in the Republic of Adygeya (North Caucasus) without food or warm clothing.
Kostya Noskov, son of the republican rescue service chief, was lost last week's Monday as he was climbing with his father and other adults for an annual meeting, to honour the memory of the deceased mountaineers. When the party set down to rest, the boy was permitted to move on ahead. Suddenly, clouds gathered and burst with a heavy rain, so the child lost his way. The searching mission, involving two helicopters and over hundred rescuers, successfully ended in the past weekend.
Kostya boasted of not even being seriously frightened. He heard the sounds of helicopters and knew he would be tracked out.
