MANAGUA, Nicaragua - Officials began autopsies Monday on the bodies of a California man and his British companion who were found on the slopes of a Nicaraguan volcano.
The bodies of Nicholas Roth, 28, of London, and Jordan Alexander Ressler, 23, of San Diego, were found Friday on the 4,600-foot Maderas volcano, 60 miles southeast of Managua.
Both appeared to have fallen to their deaths after venturing off the main trail and attempting to traverse a steep ledge. Their backpacks and documents were found nearby.
The two had been missing for more than two weeks, and were last seen on their way to climb the mountain, which is mostly covered by thick jungle, large rocks and occasional fog.
A stage and film professional with an Ivy-league education, Ressler had traveled previously in South America, Europe and Asia. Ressler and Roth apparently met on the road, according to Ressler's brother, Gary.
