This past Thursday, March 21, the body of a missing American skier was found in the backcountry in the Canton of Valais in Switzerland.

Friends of the victim reported the skier missing on Wednesday after he failed to return home. The following day a search had discovered his body.

Rescue teams conducting the search reported that his body was found at the bottom of a rock wall that was several meters high, suggesting that skier fell from a cliff.
