KUALA KANGSAR: The remaining two of four secondary students who were lost while hiking on Gunung Bubu here have been found dead.
Acting Kuala Kangsar OCPD Supt Ahmad Rabawi Abdul Jamil said Adam Asraf Azman and Muhammad Amir Asyraff, from SM Vokasional Kuala Kangsar, were found dead next to Sungai Gading by rescuers at 3.20pm Tuesday.
The bodies of the two 17-year-olds were brought down at about 6pm and were immediately taken to the Kuala Kangsar Hospital for a post-mortem.
"As of now, we still do not know the cause of death," he said.
At about 9am, rescuers found and rescued their two other schoolmates, Muhammad Putera Rafii and Siti Azimah Mohd Fitri, near the same river.
They are being treated at the hospital.
The three boys and one girl had gone missing on Sunday as they were making their way down the hill after a three-day school camping activity.
It was reported that teachers discovered them missing at about 2.30pm, but only reported the matter to the Fire and Rescue Department here at about 10pm.
The students were among the 25 students who joined the programme, and were led by six teachers.
