Christine Boskoff is not just any climber; she’s considered the top woman climber in the world.

She recently traveled to China to climb unscaled mountains. She was supposed to fly back to America two weeks ago, but no one has heard from her. Two teams of 25 searchers are combing an uncharted mountain in China.

Boskoff’s family in Appleton is very worried, especially her mother.

“She always calls me every time she comes, does any trip or mountain,” said Joyce Feld, mother. “She always calls me always and tells me that she’s safe, but she didn’t call… so…”

Christine Boskoff has climbed six of the world’s highest peaks, including Mount Everest. She and her climbing partner, Charlie Fowler, are experienced, but her family knows anything can happen during a climb.

“I have such faith in her because she knows what she’s doing,” Feld said. “She’s an excellent climber, and she didn’t call me this time.” Thanks to Maria Collier for this one.
