United Nations International Children's Fund employee Charlotte Nikoi was last seen in that region of the mountain when she turned back from a hike with her husband Chris, regional director of the World Food Programme, and their young daughter.

They had been celebrating their wedding anniversary in March and went for a walk on the mountain on Human Rights Day, 21 March.

She did not arrive at their designated meeting place and has been missing ever since.

Nikoi is an associated director for human resources at Unicef.
