Russian police launch search for US student, 25, missing in Siberian mountains two days after he vanished from guesthouse without a coat in subzero temperatures

Russian police have launched a full-scale search for an American postgraduate student who has vanished in a mountainous area of Siberia.

Colin Madsen, 25, left a guesthouse in Arshan, in the Buddhist region of Buryatia, in the early hours of Sunday morning, and has not been seen since.

Police are using a helicopter to search for the missing US citizen from Jefferson City, Missouri, who is currently studying at Irkutsk State Linguistic University.

He left the guesthouse between 2am and 5am, without a coat, despite subzero temperatures, according to a police statement, reported The Siberian Times.

The student's mother, Cale Madsen, is flying to Russia to help the search for her missing son, she said.

He is believed to have been staying at Arshan, a tourist resort which also has a prominent Buddhist temple, with Russian friends.
'Police officers are searching for a 25-year-old man, who went out of a guest house in Arshan village on 27 March, between 2 am and 5 am and has not yet returned,' said a statement from Buryatian police.
