There are no words to describe the depths of our sorrow and loss.
We believe that our girls, Bailey Sage Meola, and Sydney Jo Schumacher, perished during the earthquake and catastrophic landslide in the Langtang region of Nepal. When Sydney’s brothers, Will and Paul, searched the entirety of the trek, and saw the immense and unfathomable destruction and devastation, it became clear that there was no chance our girls had survived. Although our strong desire has been to hear final confirmation from the US Embassy, and to receive our beloved girls’ remains, we haven’t, and may never.
We have been profoundly moved by the support and love we have received from near and from far, far away. You have all had your part in helping us move through these dark days. Thank you.

It is with great sadness that I share this news we received from the SAR Dogs Nepal as to the status of the Langtang Landslide Recovery Mission. It seems the likelihood of any type of recovery in the area of Langtang is now impossible as a result of the second earthquake.
News received states;
The second quake has caused more slides and damages in and around the Gosaikunda-Langtang-Helambu region.
Horrible disfigured mountain slopes have caused huge countless landslides yesterday and entire villages are now buried.
Langtang Village is now buried under a further 300 metres high and 600 meters wide hill of debris – a new smaller mountain of its own inside the valley.
Langtang Valley is vanishing slowly from the map. The pressure by the Indian sub continental drift on the two mountain ranges at both the sides of the west to east situated canyon is absolutely immeasurable”.
We questioned the possibility of proceeding with a search and recovery effort for the areas of Kyangin Gompa, Thangsyap and Ghora Tabel – the last know location of many other loved ones still missing.
The response from SAR Dogs Nepal came as follows;
“It is out of the question that the search & recovery mission into Langtang Canyon (Valley) will resume. The Army has now taken every living human out, the place is empty. The army and local administration have declared it a restricted area, entering is not possible anymore.
There have been 3 more landslides on top of that first landslide and the entire area is still shaking and moving continuously.
This is the grim reality we face now. Also, the Monsoon is now coming in 15-20 days – this will cause serial landslides, the worse is still to come…”
It seems clear despite our hope to perhaps find someone alive in the Langtang region, to perhaps recover maybe at least one more person for one family, no amount of will can change this harsh reality, and I am so very sorry. Sorry for the young backpackers and trekkers, the beautiful people of the villages who thrived on this industry and the families across the world in pain.
If I can be of any assistance to family, please feel free to contact me.
Vishal Rishi Sharma : I would like to inform you that Airport is now open. It was closed only for a while. Flights are now functional. Also everything in Kathmandu is safe. Few casualties have been reported but situation is under control and devastation is not that huge. ########### Khaled Habash Portland, ME, United States · Hello Everyone! I wanted to update everyone. My sister, Yasmine Habash and Reid Harris, along with ALL locals, have been forced to evacuate from the Langtang Area due to multiple avalanches. The weather is/was terrible and is NOT a place to be. They did not have luck finding our mother Dawn Habash although giving up was not an option until the forced evacuation. I want to thank the people from this page and families around the world for all help, support, love and hope that has allowed us to get through the past 2 weeks. We are heartbroken and exhausted yet truly feel everyone right next to us. My heart is with your heart. Dawn Habash was on the Tamang Heritage Trek in Nepal at the time of the earthquake. ##########Here is a message from Leonie Elsner’s family: Nina Stechmann has been identified as one of the deceased in Langtang. Her friend, Leonie Elsner, is still missing. Please let everyone know that we appreciate all the help and support, organizing and staying in touch. It is such a hard time for everyone, especially those who do not know anything about their still missing ones and the ones who lost their beloved, and especially for the Nepalese people who lost everything.

I’m still waiting to hear from my brother Tyronne white 44 from Australia trekking alone. He was last seen at langtang and had a chat with another guy and i quote: I saw him on April 23rd. He was either going to stay in Langtang that day or make it up slightly higher. He was going up. We chatted briefly at the spot I was having lunch (in Langtang). Higher up to Kyanjin gompa and onto the glacier most likely and that Tyronne looked fine and ready to go!

Express train crash-Many have died and many injuring district.Phachi Ayutthaya !!
22.20 EXPRESS TRAIN COLLIDE- TRAIN NONGKAI BANGKOK 107- AND TRAIN 69
More than 50 passengers were injured, six seriously, when a Bangkok-Denchai passenger train rammed at the rear of the Bangkok-Nong Khai train near Phachee district of Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya last night.
The accident happened as the State Railways of Thailand celebrated its 118 establishment anniversary yesterday.
Among the injured were an American and a Korean.
China’s air force has sent several batches of warplanes since March 13 to track, monitor, warn and chase away Myanmar’s military planes flying close to China’s territory. China’s air force always keeps high alert and close watch on the air situation. Recently, the PLA Air Force has specially strengthened its monitor and control over the air situations in the border areas between China and Myanmar, according to Shen Jinke. Col. Shen pointed out that China’s air force will adopt measures to strengthen its response action against any air situation in China-Myanmar border areas, so as to safeguard China’s airspace sovereignty. Chinese fighter jets patrolled over the China-Myanmar borders after the deadly bombing to “track, monitor, warn and chase away” Myanmar military planes flying close to the Chinese side. BEIJING, March 15 (Xinhua) — China has both responsibility and ability to safeguard the stability of its border areas with Myanmar, Premier Li Keqiang said on Sunday. His remarks came two days after Beijing lodged representations to Myanmar on the deadly bombing in a Chinese city bordering the conflict-hit country. A bomb dropped by a Myanmar warplane on Friday killed four Chinese people and injured nine others in Lincang of Yunnan Province. “What happened was deeply distressing,” Li said at a press conference after the conclusion of China’s annual legislative session. “We have responsibility and ability to firmly safeguard stability in the border areas between the two countries and protect the life and property of our people.” China has warned that it will take a “firm and decisive action” to protect the safety of its people if any further deadly stray fire incident happens again. Vice Chairman of the Central Military Commission Fan Changlong has urged Myanmar to punish the perpetrators, as well as apologize to and compensate the families of the victims.
Myanmar has said the bomb may have been lobbed by rebels it is fighting in the Kokang region bordering China.
“We would like to express our deep sorrow for (the) death and injuries of Chinese nationals living in border areas as a consequence,”
