TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Two men were found dead on Friday (Dec. 4) and Saturday in separate incidents after they went solo mountaineering early this week.

Hsinchu County Fire Bureau said that it received a request for help on the night of Nov. 29 from the family of a 64-year-old man surnamed Chien (錢). The relatives reported that Chien went to climb Nalo Mountain in Hsinchu County alone, but he did not return home as scheduled the same day, according to CNA.

Search teams consisting of firefighters, volunteers, and Hsinchu Forest District Office staff immediately began looking for Chien in the area he was suspected to have gone missing.

The fire bureau said that after several days’ search, Chien was found dead in a forest under the summit of Nalo Mountain on Saturday.    [FULL  STORY]
