KUALA KANGSAR: Two of the four secondary students who were reported missing after a hiking and camping trip on Gunung Bubu were found dead.
Acting Kuala Kangsar OCPD Supt Ahmad Rabawi Abdul Jamil said rescuers found the bodies of Adam Asyraf Azman and Muhammad Amir Asyraff Baharuddin, from the Kuala Kangsar Vocational College, in the waters of Sungai Gading at 3.20pm yesterday.
The bodies of the two 17-year-olds were brought down at about 6pm and taken to the Kuala Kangsar Hospital for post-mortem.
“As of now, we still do not know the cause of death,” Supt Ahmad Rabawi said.
Earlier at about 9am, the rescuers had found their two other schoolmates, Muhammad Putera Rafii and Siti Azimah Mohd Fitri, near the same river, about 13km from the Kem Bina Negara Ulu Kenas.
They were admitted to the hospital.
The four went missing on Sunday as they were making their way down the hill after a three-day school camping trip.
It was reported that teachers had discovered that they were missing at about 2.30pm that day but only reported the matter to the Fire and Rescue Department here at about 10pm.
The students were among 25 who were in the trip, which was led by six teachers.
Perak Forestry Department director Datuk Roslan Ariffin, who was present throughout the search and rescue mission, urged those who wished to hike up Gunung Bubu to register with the department beforehand.
“We can always provide a professional guide for free to bring people who are hiking in a large group up the trail,” he said.
