A Sudbury area man is among the people missing following Saturday’s devastating earthquake in Nepal.

28 year old Cody Walter of Lively was hiking in the mountains when the killer quake hit. In a way that’s good news because Walter and his hiking companion weren’t in the city itself during the earthquake.

His parents are hoping that downed communication lines are the only reason why they haven’t heard from their son.
