MIRI: A local tour guide, who went missing last Friday in the Deer Cave, Mulu National Park here following a flash flood, was dead found this morning.

Miri Fire and Rescue Department chief Law Poh Kiong said the search and rescue (SAR) team discovered the body of Roviezal Robin, 20, who was believed to have drowned in the cave system’s river, at 10.10am.

The SAR mission for Roviezal, which entered its third day today (July 15), started at 8am.

Law said the four teams involved in the SAR focused on the cave passage and a deep pool in the cave system as well as Sungai Paku and Sungai Payau, which were often struck by flash floods.

“After a two-hour search, our team discovered the remains of the missing victim in the Deer Cave,” he said in a statement here today.

Roviezal and Dutch tourist Peter Hans were believed to have swept away following a flash flood on Friday evening.

The body of the 66-year-old Dutch tourist was found on Saturday.
