BAU: Missing hiker Stanley Kho, 22, was found alive at 8.40am on Sunday (Sept 23), seven days after he went missing on Mount Singai in Bau district.
Search and rescue teams found him on a steep hillslope with a gradient of about 80 degrees, Bomba Sarawak said in its latest update.
"The search and rescue teams found him alive but weak.
"Some villagers heard cries for help and alerted the search teams who went to the site and managed to locate him.
"They are trying to bring him out but the slope is very steep," said Bomba Sarawak.
The 7th day of Search and Rescue Operations to locate Kho saw about 300 searchers being involved.
Aerial drones were also used to aid the ground search, which extended to the mountain summit and into the deep canyons below.
Aside from search-and-rescue units from Sarawak Bomba, the police, army, border regiments, general operations force, Rela, hiking groups, kampung folks, local politicians and members of Team Dunia Mistik Sri Aman were also involved in the search.
Kho went missing in the late afternoon on Sept 17 after ascending the mountain on foot alone.
