Two minors were reported missing while swimming in Addu City on Saturday, as adverse weather conditions continue throughout the country.
While a search is ongoing for the two teens, earlier on Sunday it was reported that the t-shirt belonging to one the boys, had been found.
However, the city’s online news source ‘Addu Live’ has refuted these reports, citing a third boy who was also reported missing, and found later.
Three students from Hithadhoo school were reported missing at around 11:30 am on Saturday, after going swimming following football practice.
16-year-old Raif Ali was found on Saturday afternoon, and is being treated at Hithadhoo Regional Hospital.
Raif said that the two boys- Ali Fahmy and Mayameen Ali, had not been wearing any t-shirts and that ‘the jersey found in the sea did not belong to either’.
Speaking to some local media outlets, Addu City’s deputy mayor Mohamed Yasrif had said that a jersey belonging to one the missing teenagers had been found.
