Navy Joins Police in Search for Missing Student in Ossu Featured

DILI: Navy officers have joined in the search for a missing student suspected to be carried away by floodwater in Ossu, Viqueque on Sunday.

Evanjelina da Silva and Olímpia da Silva disappeared Sunday while crossing the flooded river in Uagia Village, Ossu, in Viqueque. One body, not yet identified, has been found.

Henrique da Costa, Sub Inspector of Timor-Leste National Police, welcomed the involvement of defence force’s navy officers, saying difficulty seeing in the dirty and deep floodwater had slowed search progress.

“The navy force has been with us in Ossu since Sunday and we still search for the flood victim.”
