Fishing trip turns to disaster at Hahalis

The father of two children went fishing on Friday, but failed to return home.

Realising this, villagers and relatives immediately searched the area at the weekend, but failed to locate the body except for parts or pieces of his canoe with some of the fish he had caught.

It is now believed that he must have drowned.

Heavy weather condition at the weekend with continuous heavy rain and wind  had struck the region.

Meanwhile, the search is continuing today with the assistance of the Disaster Office who will comb the area to try and locate the missing person.
