Police are scouring a remote region in the Himalayan mountains of northern Nepal for Aubrey Sacco, who was reported missing by her family after she failed to check in following a solo hike. The police chief for the area says teams are searching the trekking route and interviewing inn owners and villagers. Word has been sent to local monasteries, which are often visited by foreign trekkers.
The father of the 23-year-old Colorado woman who has been missing since last month says his daughter is "one tough cookie." Greeley attorney Paul Sacco told the Greeley Tribune that while his daughter doesn't have extensive hiking experience, but she's in good shape, works as a yoga instructor and is likely just out of phone contact.
