A 58-year-old Indian mountaineer, Paresh Chandra Nath, who went missing on Mount Everest nearly a week ago, was found dead on Friday.

Attempts were being made to locate another Indian climber whose body was reportedly lying above 8,000 metres on the world's highest mountain.

According to Wangchu Sherpa, the managing director at Trekking Camp Nepal that managed the expedition, a team of six Sherpas retrieved the body, above the camp IV. Sherpa added that Nath's body is being brought to the camp II.

However, due to high wind, they could not move ahead from the higher camp to locate another missing climber Goutam Ghosh, whose body was also reportedly lying above 8,000 metres on the high mountain.

Nath and Ghosh were near the summit of the 8,848-metre peak last Saturday when they lost contact with the rest of the four-member team, all of whom were Indians.
