KATHMANDU - A search team retrieved the body of top US ski mountaineer Hilaree Nelson from the Himalayas on Wednesday, two days after she disappeared on the slopes of Nepal’s Manaslu peak. Nelson slipped and went missing while skiing down the world’s eighth-highest mountain, after a successful summit with her partner Jim Morrison on Monday.  Morrison led the search operations and had left Wednesday morning on a helicopter to resume efforts to locate her.  “The search team that left this morning on a helicopter spotted her body and is bringing her back,” Jiban Ghimire of Shangri-La Nepal Trek, which organised the expedition, told AFP.
