A Russian student, Alexander Sagiyev, missing since last weekend in the American state of Wyoming, has been found dead, the administration of the local Grand Teton Park said on Friday. The young man worked at the park during the summer.
His body was found in one of the park areas. The cause of his death has yet to be established.
The fourth-year student of the Nizhny Novgorod-based branch of the Russian Higher School of Economics was sought by Wyoming police for about a week, after the park administration reported to police that he was missing. He was seen the last time about a week ago in a local bar talking by mobile telephone. He was found dead with severe injuries, supposedly, received after a fall from a height.
Russian diplomats were informed about the Russian citizen's death, Russian Consular-General Andrei Yushmanov in Seattle, Washington, told Itar-Tass.
He said representatives of the Grand Teton Park called the Consulate in Seattle and informed that rescuers on Friday found the missing student dead.
