The woman and her three-year-old son did not return home after a walk. A pension owner had launched the search operation.
After a search lasting several days, a woman and her three-year-old son were found dead in the Czech mountains. Mountain rescue service members discovered the two lifeless on Monday in the Rosenberg area, about three kilometers north of the popular winter sports resort of Pec pod Sněžkou, police said. More than 150 helpers took part in the search through the impassable and snowy terrain, and emergency services also arrived from neighboring Poland.
The exact cause of death will now be determined. A guesthouse owner has reported the 40-year-old Czech and her son missing after the two failed to return from a hike. It is said that they had a sleigh with them.
The winter sports resort of Pec pod Sněžkou (Petzer) is located in the northeast of the Czech Republic, almost 70 kilometers east of the German border town of Zittau. A cable car takes you from here to Sněžka, the highest point in the Giant Mountains.
