SIBU: The search and rescue (SAR) operation for a missing 25-year-old man at the Batang Igan Bridge has intensified as the search radius increased.
On Saturday, the search for Yong Dock Ho continued for the third day as Bomba, police and the Civil Defence Force (APM) searched the water surface.
The State Fire and Rescue Operation Centre stated that the operation expanded the search radius to 15 km upstream.
Throughout the whole day of the operation, there were no clues or evidence of the victim.
Due to the darker conditions, the SAR operation was suspended at 6.30 pm yesterday.
Before this, the 25-year-old man was reported missing at 10 am on Wednesday (Aug 24). He was last seen on the Batang Igan Bridge.
Family members went out to search for him but only found the vehicle he used and his personal items inside.
