The search operation was initially carried out by two helicopters which were forced to land after not much time owing to the unfavorable weather. The defence ministry of Switzerland said it would, however, resume the flights as soon as the weather conditions allowed. Meanwhile, two teams comprised of mountaineering experts and rescue workers were taking forward the search operation.
