Chinese scientist goes missing in Xinjiang
Beijing: A young Chinese scientist went missing on a glacier in north-west Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, the Chinese Academy of Sciences said on Friday.
Lin Shubiao, 29, had reportedly gone missing on July 28 while he was leading a team that was building an automatic weather station on a glacier of Mount Muztagata, the academy officials said.
No information about the scientist has been received so far, they said, adding that a 29-member rescue team, including 10 professional climbers, failed to find Lin after searching for seven and a half days.
Lin is the deputy director of an observation station on the mountain for the Institute of Tibetan Plateau Research, which is part of the academy.
