Search continues for Dane missing in Swedish mountains

The search for a 19-year-old Danish man missing in northern Sweden will continue with full force this weekend, police tell news agency TT.

The man disappeared Wednesday in the Ritsem area of the mountains in Norrbotten.

Saturday morning, some 20 soldiers, plus dogs, and four helicopters were reported to be scanning the region for signs of the man.

On Friday, information officer with the Norrbotten police department, Stina Lindmark, told Swedish Radio news P4 Norrbotten that she did not want to play any guessing games but that "we are working under the assumption that we will find him."
