The 22-year-old Briton fell and injured himself, while solo climbing the 10000 ft mountain. Webb was in contact with his girlfriend until 4th June. Webb informed about losing his path before his phone died.
Webb family has appealed to several travellers in the area to help them out, after Aiden remained missing for five days at a stretch, in the jungle of Vietnam.
His family created a Facebook page and urged for help by writing “Aiden is lost, injured, cold & wet in the Vietnam Jungle. Please! Help us find him! He has hurt his knee, torn open his arm and lost his flashlight after falling by a waterfall … ANY backpackers in the area, any experienced climbers or locals that are willing to save a life, I will reward you for your efforts & for finding him!!!!! We NEED people who are strong!!!!!”
Aiden’s father and uncle, Trever Webb and Michael Webb reached northern Vietnam on 7th June and both of them are searching for Aiden along with the rescue teams, consisting of 25 to 30 fire-fighters on each team.
Aiden’s father Trever stated, “My son has incredible strength and courage. The terrain is very harsh, I need to take Aiden back home to his mum alive, we need a mountain rescue team who are trained in such matters.”
The Facebook page raised more than £4000 to fund the rescue mission of this skilled rock climber.
Aiden’s girlfriend, Bluebell Baughan explained that it would be extremely hard to find Aiden if he is incapacitated in a steep sided and hard to access valley. She also requested, via Facebook, for anyone with a camera drone to help them find Aiden in the dense jungle of Vietnam.
