While it remains unclear who is detaining the pair, they are being held in the Skouw area, with Indonesian media reporting that the information has been relayed by PNG defence force personnel.

The Jakarta Post reports the Indonesian Consul in Vanimo, Elmar Lubi, as saying two men aged 28 and 30, who work in the logging sector, were captured on Wednesday while working in Skofro hamlet in Indonesia's Kerom regency.
