Lost Russians in 'miracle' rescue


news.bbc.co.uk

Mr Zverev said he survived for 20 days by sleeping in a cave covered in tree branches.
A joint Sino-Russian search team found the second survivor, Andrei Pautov, about 10 hours after Mr Zverev was picked up.
A search for the tourists was launched after they failed to meet their Chinese interpreter on 2 September after beginning their trip in mid-August.
The Yurungkax River flows north from the Kunlun mountains through steep gorges before drying up in the Taklamakan Desert.

This may seem irrelevant to others but I have been thinking about the similarities between this case and the one involving the disappearance of Steve Fosset.

Both involved the maneuvering of large numbers to search and rescue teams as well as aircraft. In the case of this story, the teams were controlled by a joint Russian-Chinese force.

Could both nations have inadvertently used the same ploy to conceal military action in some quarter? In both cases the 'searches' were taking place in desolate areas and deserts were military bases are likely to be located.

So 3 dead, 2 rescued - where's the the 6th guy?
River equals water, well known the human body can survive for long periods just on water.
With the 'active search' now ended for Steve, guess it's going to be some time before we get any news.

With a canoe you're most likely going to be found on or near a river.
With the river flowing in one direction, it's a lot easier than a plane flying in any direction.
As to the military question, Russia and China are good friends so shouldn't be any conflict there.
