Emergency workers are searching for a group of people who disappeared while on a spiritual retreat in the Andes.
Drones and dogs are being deployed to comb the mountainous area around La Grita, in Venezuela’s Táchira state.
An official with the civil protection team said between 16 and 20 people were missing, but local media suggest the number could be higher.
Relatives say they have not heard from their loved ones since they left for the retreat on 22 August. END
