By Amir Vera and Claudia Dominguez, CNN The body of a skier who has been missing since Christmas was found this weekend after a six-day search near the Northstar Ski Resort in Truckee, California, according to a statement from the Placer County Sheriff's Office Facebook page.Angelotta's disappearance kicked off a six-day search that saw the deployment of 220 personnel from 17 different agencies and rescue organizations, including volunteers with the Tahoe Nordic Search and Rescue team and the Nevada County Sheriff's Search & Rescue, authorities said.Rescue teams suspended the search for Angelotta on December 30 after determining there was "no realistic possibility Rory has survived the severe winter conditions," the Placer County Sheriff's Office said."Angelotta had traveled a considerable distance from the ski resort boundaries and the backside of the resort, where searchers believed Angelotta had gotten lost during the whiteout conditions on the 25th," the Placer County Sheriff's Office statement read.

When he did not arrive, his friends called to report him missing, Placer County officials said.Angelotta's body was found Saturday just north of the resort, officials said.
