Call for witnesses14.03.2022 Local News
After it was reported to the Bern Cantonal Police on Thursday, 3 March 2022, that a boy had been injured in an accident in the Glacier3000 ski area in Gsteig b. Gstaad (municipality of Gsteig) and that a female snowboarder involved had left the scene of the accident, the Bern Cantonal Police have started investigations into the accident. In this context, an call for witnesses was published with the aim of finding the unknown snowboarder. Since the wanted woman has not contacted the police in response to the appeal and no information about her identity has been received, the public prosecutor's office responsible for the Oberland region has now decided to publish a photograph of the snowboarder showing her at the time of the accident.
The snowboarder had been involved in a collision with a boy on skis on the red Martisberg slope No 101 at about 3.45pm on Monday, 28 February 2022. After the accident, the woman, who had been accompanied by a skier, had left. The boy, who was of kindergarten age, suffered injuries in the accident and was taken to the doctor.
According to the investigations carried out, the woman and the skier were probably in the village of Gstaad on Thursday, 3 March 2022. She is about 20 to 30 years old, has a slim build and communicated in English. At the time of the accident, she was wearing a striking turquoise-green ski jacket – possibly by Oakley –, dark greenish ski pants, a white helmet, black Anon ski goggles and a black face shield. She is believed to have been riding a Nitro snowboard. Her companion, the skier, was dressed in dark clothing and wearing white ski boots.
The picture of the snowboarder will be available immediately for one week or until further notice. The Bern Cantonal Police can be contacted for information on the identity of the woman on +41 33 227 61 11.
