The body of Charlie Fowler was identified in China overnight. Charlie and his climbing partner Christine Boskoff went missing in November.
WBAY reported this news:

Action 2 News has learned the body found in the mountains of southwestern China was identified as Charlie Fowler.

Christine Boskoff’s family in the Fox Valley told Action 2 News they were notified overnight that Fowler’s body was identified. Boskoff, an Appleton native, is still missing.

Boskoff and her climbing partner, Charlie Fowler, were last heard from seven weeks ago. They failed to make their return flight back to the United States on December 4th, and a search for the pair began about a week later.

The body of one climber was found partially buried Wednesday afternoon. Only the lower body from the knees was visible. The body was left untouched.

The Fowler-Boskoff Search Fund are collecting donations for the recovery efforts.

More Details: Friends believe it may have been an avalanche that swept them up. The two were not roped together.
