Search on for missing Latvian

Divers from the Southern Naval Command continued their search for Latvian national Liga Skromane, who had gone missing from Kovalam two weeks ago, on Wednesday, but in vain.

Two weeks after Latvian national Liga Skromane went missing from Kovalam, the State government has sought the help of Navy and Air Force for underwater search in the area.

“Southern Naval command mobilised Gemini inflatable boats, under-water sonar and six deep sea divers for the search around Kovalam area. The divers started the search operation with sonar near grove beach and light house area. Yesterday the search was carried out in the area of Grove and Samudra beach. Today they covered Sea Rock and Light house beach area. Since the search is close to the coast, underwater area is very muddy. Divers are using their divator sets for search. In addition, during low water they are searching under rocks also. The search will end by tomorrow afternoon,” a press note said here.
