Turkey: Search underway for 2 missing hikers

Search and rescue operations started Monday for two people who went missing near Turkey's famous Mt. Uludag peak, according to a local authority.

Rescue workers continue the intense search in Uludag and Alacam regions which are fully covered with snow, the governor's office in northwestern Bursa province said in a statement.

Mert Alpaslan and Efe Sarp went missing on Sunday evening due to heavy fog.

Families of the missing hikers called the gendarmerie when they could not reach their sons.
