It was Jostein Brage Dahlum from Levanger who lost his life in the accident.

Dahlum was reported missing by a friend on Thursday afternoon, as he had not returned from a mountain hike he set out the day before.

Demanding search operation

According to the sheriff, there was a challenging search operation for the man on Thursday. Few information and bad weather made the search difficult.

– It is a large area with several possible roads in. This combined with fog made it difficult, says Hilde.
