Search by Gullfoss is over for now

The search for Nika Begades has been stopped for now. The next steps of the search will be decided in the coming days. Begades is a 22-year-old Georgian asylum seeker who is believed to have fallen into Gullfoss this past Wednesday.

Search parties have scoured a 30-kilometer area in and around Hvítá river but found no signs of Begades. Viðar Arason with the Icelandic Association for Search and Rescue, says that the river will be monitored regularly by members of the Eyvindur rescue team from Flúðir. Anglers, owners of summer cabins and farmers in the area are asked to keep their eyes peeled.
