The search and rescue operation to trace a French paraglider pilot — who went missing after a jump in Duikar village, Hunza, Gilgit-Baltistan on Saturday — is still underway.

French paraglider Savall Xavier Alain Francois took off with two Spanish paragliders from a peak, but went missing at around 4:00 pm on Saturday soon after taking the flight.

The Spanish paragliders, however landed safely in Ganish valley, Nagar, Gilgit-Baltistan, Karrar Haidri, said Alpine Club of Pakistan secretary, adding that the police and local volunteers rushed to the site, but the paraglider could not be located.

Now a helicopter is also taking part to trace the missing paraglider, he added.

The paragliders had arrived in Hunza late last month and stayed in a local hotel.

Pakistan’s sparsely-populated region, Gilgit-Baltistan, is home to some of the top peaks and a major tourist destination. A large number of tourists visit the region each year for expeditions on various peaks, paragliding and other sports.
