Three geologists went missing in northwest China’s Qinghai Province 15 days ago. A new search mission began Monday, after a rescue team arrived at Ger-er-mu city on Sunday night.

This time, the rescue team will be using professional GPS devices together with information about the area’s terrain. More than two weeks ago, three geologists were reported missing at the Hoh Xil reserve.

The missing geologists, employed by a Shaanxi geological and mining development company, were on an scientific research tour around the Hoh Xil region. Local reports say the missing geologists may have fallen into a partially frozen lake.
