Two deaf-mute German tourists are at this time – 1.25 am this Friday – lost in the Vereda da Encumeada, in Ribeira Brava.
The searches involve the Ribeira Brava Volunteer Firefighters, the Forest Police and the GNR. The fact that the couple can not express themselves could be an additional problem for the relief teams.
As we knowthe tourists are contactable and in all probability, good health. They have communicated with the 112 through their relatives via mobile messages .. Everything points to be on the trail that goes to Pico Ruivo although they are disoriented.
Tourists began hiking in the morning but did not leave the trail on time before nightfall.
