July 10, 2024

An American mountain climber who never came home from a trip to Peru has finally been found. Reports say William Stampfl, 59, hasn't been seen since his trip in 2002. He was believed to have been lost to an avalanche on Huascaran, the country's tallest mountain. The mummified remains of a climber were found in the mountains due to receding glacier ice. Video shows the clothing and climbing boots well preserved after decades under snow and ice. Inside Edition Digital’s Mara Montalbano has more.
