24-year-old Tormod Aniksdal from Hå in Rogaland was part of a three-man fishing expedition that went horribly wrong.

Greenland police and rescue services believe the men had tried to cross the river in Paradisdalen on the makeshift raft, made from airbeds and sticks bound together with rope, which was found on Monday.

The three were reported missing on Saturday near Søndre Strømfjord (Kangerlussuaq) on the west side of Greenland.

The two others who were with Aniksdal, 31-year-old Jonas Reistad and Magnar Haarr (24), both from Hå, are still missing.

Families and friends of the three arrived on Greenland early yesterday morning to help with the search, according to Stavanger Aftenblad.
