Body Found in China is Not Appleton Native

The family of Christine Boskoff says the body found by rescuers on a remote mountain in China is not the former Appleton woman.

That means the body found is most likely Boskoff's climbing partner, Charlie Fowler.

The two were supposed to return to the U.S. on December 4th, but never made it back.

Christine Boskoff is the owner of the Seattle adventure company, Mountain Madness.

The company's former owner, Scott Fischer, died in 1996 when a fierce storm hit as he was helping to guide climbers on Mount Everest.

Boskoff bought the company in 1997.

Company director David Jones says that if Boskoff and her fellow climber have died, at least they were experiencing the beauty of pristine mountain climbing, going where no one else has gone, at the time.
