A three hour search for a missing Ukrainian couple had failed to locate the pair lost in Khao Ngon Nak, Krabi yesterday evening. They had ignored warnings about walking in the area. 

 

Local Muang district official Suphot Saengsilawuthikun said that tourist and immigration police, park officials and locals were involved in the search. 

 

Oliga Lerominska and husband Lurii had contacted their hotel at 5pm to say they were lost. Then their signal had gone dead. 

 

Their co-ordinates were reported to searchers but after two routes some 5 kilometers deep into the jungle were searched they had not found the couple. 

 

The couple had ignored warnings in place forbidding access to the area due to rain, reported Daily News. 

 

More about this as we hear of it.

A Ukrainian couple was rescued in the early hours of Monday some eight hours after getting lost while climbing to a viewpoint on a mountaintop in Krabi’s Muang district.

The two were identified as Oliga Ierominska and her husband, Luril Ierominska.

 

They started climbing up Khao Ngon Nak Mountain to the viewpoint at 5pm but found themselves lost so used a mobile phone to contact the staff of their hotel and ask for help.

They said they were walking on the track at the back of the mountain, which is located behind their hotel. The Haad Thap Kaek National Park had announced the closure of this track on January 3 following heavy rain and told tourists to use the path at the front of the mountain.

 

After being informed by hotel staff, the park dispatched two teams to search for the couple, who later managed to share their location on their smartphone with the search teams.

 

The rescuers found the couple at 1am and gave them food and water before leading them safely back to their hotel.

Must be the same Ukranian couple that went kayaking to the Krabi islands last weekend, while there was a weather warning and nobody was allowed to go out to sea. Some people....

Search?   If you don't believe in Karma, at least believe in Darwinism.
