Four Chinese geological investigators who had been missing for a week were found dead in southwest China's Yunnan Province, local authorities reported, informed The Xinhua News Agency.

In a sweep across multiple counties, the rescue team found three bodies and another 14 hours later.

Ten helicopters and dozens of vehicles, drones, satellite phones as well as over 8,000 people had been deployed for the search and rescue mission, which faced severe challenges due to a highly difficult terrain.

The four geologists, all from the Kunming Natural Resources Comprehensive Survey Center of China Geological Survey, entered the Ailao Mountains last week to survey forestry resources.

Two days later, the local government of Zhenyuan County, from where the four set out, received a report that contact had been lost.
