Help to bring Petr home

Update posted by Josef Sestak On Jan 03, 2020

Vážení přátelé,

nesmírně si vážím solidarity, se kterou jste podpořili můj crowdfunding. Crowdfunding je uzavřen. Zažili jsme nejsmutnější konec roku 2019 jaký si vůbec kdo může představit. Ráno 31. prosince jsme byli novozélanskými záchranáři informováni o nalezení Petra ve spodní části hřebene Haast Ridge. Moje dcery i já jsme velmi doufaly, že se podaří najít mého muže a jejich tátu Petra živého. Petr byl zkušený horolezec, marathonec, rovný chlap na kterého bylo spolehnutí. Osud připravil jiný scénář. Mt. Cook, Nový Zéland bere životy. Není to jediná hora, která ukryje své dobrodruhy pod sněhem a ledem. Jsou rodiny, které nemají možnost se se svými blízkými rozloučit nikdy, protože nejsou jejich těla nikdy nalezena. Já a mé dcery tuto možnost i díky Vaší finanční podpoře máme. Bolí to a bude stále, ale pomůže nám to se vyrovnat se smrtí Petra lépe.

Z celého svého srdce Vám děkuji

Lea Mandíková a dcery Anička, Klárka a Terezka

Nikdy Vám tuto pomoc nezapomeneme.

Dear friends,

I greatly appreciate your solidarity and support to my crowdfunding. This is now closed. We have experienced the saddest end of 2019 anyone can ever imagine. By the morning 31st of December we received an information that Petr's body has been found at the bottom of the Haast Ridge. My daughters and me, we had really hoped to be able to find my husband and their father Petr alive. Petr was experienced climber, marathon runner, decent man I could always rely on. However, the fate has written another story. Mt. Cook in New Zealand is the mountain taking lives. But it is not the only mountain hiding mountaineers buried under ice and snow. There are families who don't have the opportunity to say goodbye as the mountain keeps the bodies forever. Thanks to your support it is possible for me and my daughters to do so. It hurts and going to hurt but it will help us to deal with Petr's death as well.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Lea Mandíková and daughters Anička, Klárka a Terezka

We will never forget your help.

Right after Petr went missing, the official search operation was executed by professional SAR team from Aoraki region. Unfortunately, it was not possible to localise Petr during the operation. Due to bad weather it wasn't possible to do detailed aerial and ground search. Unfortunately, last week the area was exposed to multiple storms with important quantity of a new snow, strong wind sand with high risk of avalanches. The official operation was supported by number of private search flights.

Unfortunately, the search has not been successful yet. It was not been possible to continue the search for the past two days due to weather conditions. However, the search should be resumed in the following days. So far it has been financed by an insurance provider. Another four days of search are planned. Afterwards, it should be financed from this campaign and private funds. One day of search costs approximately 13 000,- CHF.

Lea and the girls are grateful for your support. It means a lot that so many people care.
