How many people could not be determined. Traces I saw on the river. Lozva above the river Auspii 1,5 - 2 km. Traces were on the river. Auspia, and then to the Urals Mountains. When I saw traces of the exact number I do not remember, but about or at the end of January or early February 1959. Traces were swept up in a clean place, and where the forest is slightly priporosheny snow. I went skiing, together with me there were three more people. Andrey Andreyov (also) Alekseevich, my nephew, Anyamov Nikolai Pavlovich is also my nephew, Tseskin Konstantin Mansi. On the hunt, the four of us left the village.

Especially for two days there was a strong wind and snow. During a strong wind we were in the forest. Traces of tourists we saw all four Mansi. Footprints went in the direction of the mountains, but we did not follow these tracks. When we hunted in the woods around the river. Auspia, they saw traces of moose, wolves and wolverines. We did not see or hear any traces from the fires and any voices of people during the hunt. I heard that when the Mansi who were looking for tourists found 4 people frozen, so they said they did not know yet. Molebnoj mountains there where there were tourists are not present. A molebnaya mountain is in the upper reaches of the river. Seeing. As well as what could happen to tourists, I do not know anything and I do not know how it happened. We were on the hunt for about five days. I personally never saw in my district another people in the number of five people who are allegedly afraid of Mansi and who did not come to Ivdel from other Mansi either. When we arrived from the hunt in the village. Suvat-Paul then said, i.e. said Mansi to others that they saw traces of narrow skis or tourists went to the Urals or some kind of expedition. I can not add anything else
