CHIKKAMAGALURU: Two youths, who were on a trekking expedition with a ten-member team in the Baba Budangiri ranges, went missing on Saturday night.
Shashidar (25) and Vivek Gupta (30), both engineers in Hyderabad, are said to be missing. The team camped at Datta Peeta on Saturday morning. They set out on a trekking expedition from Galikere to Kemmanagundi. After walking around 8 kms, the team lost its way around 2.45 pm, owing to thick fog.
Shashidhar and Vivek took the initiative to go ahead and trace the route, but they did not not return. Their fellow team members searched for them, but in vain.
They informed the I.D Peeta police, who launched a search operation.
