Title: Missing Diver in Komodo Rinta Mukkam
Post by: Timo on 22 Jul 17, 18:13
Does anyone heard or knows any updates on the status of Rinta yet? I believe it's been a week she went missing in Komodo.

Last update from the funding site by her family friend.

Search and Recovery Day 5

Update posted by Srinesh Balakrishnan On Jul 17, 2017
Yesterday was the last day where Roy got on the Helicopter to search for Rinta. Unfortunately, the search was unsuccessful yet again. Experts suggest that the funds will be better put towards search and recovery on boats and with divers from herein. A letter was written to request more assistance and after trying multiple avenues and channels, someone in the MFA was finally able to assist. To this effect, some assistance has only now been provided to continue the search... better late than never i guess.

The BASARNAS has kindly agreed to supply 3 additional large vessels along with private boats and divers hired by the family to continue to search near the dive site and neighboring areas from today. Reward notices have also been circulated and continue to be circulated to the neighbouring island villages and locals through various local channels.
