Boyfriend Dan Colegate, 38, said the pain of “not knowing what has happened is excruciating” as he revealed he fears she may have been snatched.

Authorities believe the Durham travel blogger, missing since late November, had an accident.

Last month Spanish lawyer Andres Funes, 61, went missing near there.

Yesterday it emerged four other European hikers have vanished in the glacier-rich region since 2006.

All, like Esther, were on their own.

A spokesman for the French police said: “It’s not an easy terrain.”
