MS-NBC is now reporting that the body of Charlie Fowler has been identified in China. Very few details beyond that have been offered at this point, but Fowler’s body was found on a remote mountain a few days ago, and properly identified today.
You’ll recall that Fowler, and climbing partner Christine Boskoff, were reported missing after failing to catch a flight home to the States on Dec. 4th. Since then a search has been organzied and an investigation conducted, that followed a trail of clues to a remote area in Southwest China. The body was found at 17,390 feet on Genie Mountain, also known as Genyen Peak, not far from the Tibetan border.
At this time, there is still no word on Boskoff’s where abouts. The search and investigation will continue in hope of unearthing clues as to what happend to the two very experienced climbers. More as it becomes available. You can also follow a complete time line of the search at the Fowler-Boskoff Search Engine.
Thanks once again Carl!
