“Keep the search alive”

It’s almost 2 years ago since Christiaan left for his trip to Dhaulagiri mountain in the Himalayas, Nepal. Unfortunately he is still missing since May 16 2016.

Everyone has his own way to cope with the missing of Christiaan, with his own conclusions. What everybody has in common however, is the love for Christiaan, who has left such an unforgettable impression with so many people..

Looking forward: keep the search alive
It’s tough to keep the search alive when there are no specific ideas for new search operations. After such a long time it’s impossible to search for trails. We do hope that if something (like trails or gear) of Christiaan will be found, the local people or trekkers will link it to Christiaan. And that we of course hear of it. There will be people passing through the area in the trekking seasons. We want to make sure that everybody there knows about the missing of Christiaan. We will spread a document with his photo, information and gearlist to different places in the area such as the police station in Beni and Italian Camp on the Dhaulagiri Mountain. He is also mentioned at www.missingtrekker.com.

Army mission aborted

After days of waiting and bad weather, the special unit of the Nepalese Army decided to abort the mission. This morning we received a phone call from the colonel with this message. The helicopter who was waiting left this morning to Kathmandu. How frustrating is it to see the weather improve this morning, just hours after the helicopter left…

John talks with local police

John is talking with the local police about all possible scenarios, so the team can take all necessary actions. The co-operation with the Dutch consulate is going very well and helps to connect with local contacts.

How does Italian camp look like

Christiaan was on his way to Italian camp, but as far as we know, never arrived. These photos give a good impression of the location.
