Footage Recovered Close To Where The Bodies Were Found

The vision was found by the Indo-Tibetan Border Force on Monday about 5,790 metres up an "unnamed peak near Nanda Devi East" in the Himalayas.

Local media reported on Twitter that the video was recovered close to the area where some of the bodies of the trekkers climbing near Nanda Devi East, India's second highest mountain, were found.

The climbers -- four from Britain, two from the United States, and one each from Australia and India -- were reported missing by colleagues on May 28 after they failed to return to their base camp near Nanda Devi.

All eight trekkers were presumed dead after an avalanche occurred on Nanda Devi East.

Among the trekkers was Sydney woman Ruth McCance and her British team leader Martin Moran.

Five bodies, believed to be part of the team, were located from the air two weeks before they were recovered. The bodies of seven of the eight trekkers have now been removed from the mountain.

McCance's body was among the first four to be recovered from the mountain. She was remembered in a memorial service last week, where more than 300 people packed into St James' Church in Sydney to pay tribute to a woman who had boundless time for others.

The search for the eighth body had to be suspended on June 27 as the weather turned due to the approach of the monsoon season.
