(ANSA) – AVEZZANO, FEB 2 – The search for four hikers missing
in the Abruzzo mountains for ten days resumed on Tuesday after
bad weather had halted operations Monday.

avalanche and died there on January 23, rescue services have
said.
    The four, from the town of Avezzano, went missing amid driving
snow and gales on Mt Velino.
    Search efforts in the area were hampered by more heavy snowfall
on Monday.
    Even mountain rescue dogs were struggling.
    Rescue teams were also facing a fresh avalanche risk.
    A helicopter able to plant ‘microcharges’ to clear snow was sent
to the scene. (ANSA).
