– The rest of the tour mates were a little unsure of where he might be found, which lead to a Sea King rescue helicopter being used in searching for the man. The man was located by helicopter, and rescuers were submitted, said operations manager Henning Robertsen in Finnmark police.
At 15 o’clock  the emergency services  could confirm that the man had died.
– We do not know any more yet about what has happened. We will not bring more information about the age and nationality until we have contacted his relatives,  Robertsen said.
