News in Brief
Police and coast guard officers were alarmed after receiving information that a citizen identified as Saud Al-Muslim disappeared in Aryaaq – the southern part of the country – while scuba diving with a friend, reports Al-Seyassah daily. According to police sources, the friend called the Operations Unit in the Interior Ministry saying Al-Muslim did not appear hours after diving into the sea. This prompted the rescue divers to search for Al-Muslim with the help of the team formed by the Coast Guard.
Al-Muslim’s disappearance happened on Friday evening and the rescue operation involved officers from Kuwait Army who used unmanned aircraft and several boats to search for him, in addition to coordination with authorities in Saudi Arabia as the location where he reportedly disappeared is close to Saudi waters.
Netizens took to social media platforms to appeal to those who frequent the sea to help in the search and report to the security authority if they
find the missing citizen.
