The Norwegian man who has been missing in the highland areas of Jämtland in northern Sweden since last Wednesday has been found alive but immobilized with a broken leg.

The man, who is reported to be in his forties was found by a Norwegian helicopter team at around 4.30pm, according to Åsa Wallinder at Jämtland police.

Swedish and Norwegian forces are cooperating in the search for a Norwegian citizen who disappeared in the highlands.

Norwegian police alerted their Swedish colleagues during the early hours of Saturday after the man’s car was found in a rest area Skalstugan in Jämtland near the Norwegian border.

About 70 people from the Norwegian side of the border and some 20 from the Swedish side had been engaged in the search for the man.

The search continues meanwhile for a 78-year-old Danish man who disappeared during Friday night in Härjedalen.

According to police, the man was travelling in a car with his wife. The car broke down near Sveg and they spent the night in the car. When his wife woke up early in the morning the man was gone.

Around 80 people from the police, armed forces and volunteer groups are looking for 78-year-old.
