Colorado cop missing in Russia

Climber disappears during attempt to climb Russia's tallest mountain.

(KUSA) Ten days after his wife was supposed to hear from him, a Littleton, Colorado police officer is still missing after hiking a mountain in Russia.

On June 14, Steven Beare started his trek on Mt. Elbrus, the tallest mountain in Russia and Europe. He had planned to summit the first peak of the mountain that day and the second a day later before checking in.

For Olivia Beare, that call never came.

“It’s just so big and there’s so much snow. It looks so cold and I just can’t imagine him just sitting out there somewhere,” she said Monday.
