UPDATE: Marine Search Launched for Two Missing Foreigners with Kayak in Phuket

Phuket –

A marine search was launched for two missing male foreigners with a kayak in Mueang Phuket.

Our previous story:

Two foreigners have been reported missing two days after they rented a kayak on Coconut Island in Mueang Phuket.

Now for the update:

The marine search was launched on Sunday afternoon (March 12th) by Kusoldharm rescue divers. They went searching using a boat launched from the Laem Hin Pier in Koh Kaew.

Kusoldharm rescue divers told the Phuket Express that the search team was looking for the missing kayak. If they found the kayak they will go down into the sea to search under and nearby. However, no sign of the kayak and the two foreigners were found after three hours of searching so far. There was also a strong current during the search.

Meanwhile, the Phuket Marine Police have also searched around the nearby area in question.

This is a developing story.
