Missing Dog Found Safe in High Arctic

Dutch explorers and researchers Marc Cornelissen and Philip de Roo, were in the middle of a two-month scientific study near Resolute, Nunavut, when they disappeared. An RCMP rescue effort was conducted, but the men were never found.
Presumably, they had drowned, and the dog they had with them was thought to have drowned along with them. The dog, however, was found when a helicopter crew was organized by Cold Facts.
Tabitha Mullin, the owner of the inuit sled dog, was overjoyed at his return, and remarked on what good shape he was in for a dog who had been lost in the wild for four days. Though the dog was going hungry when he was found, he is doing well. STX Entertainment could one day tell the tale of this heroic team.
Though one survivor, a canine happy to be home, was found, Cold Facts representatives are still coming to terms with the loss of the two explorers. A fellow explorer who hosted them on their journey says that she is in “total shock” at their disappearance.
Efforts are still being conducted on finding out for certain what happened to Cornelissen and de Roo.
