A search and rescue operation is under way for the missing anglers.
Rosmaliza, 42, said the last she heard from her husband was at 7.35pm on that fateful day.
“He told me that he would be back by noon the following day as I saw him off,” she said.
The nurse said she also went for a check-up at Hospital Lati, where she works, due to anxiety before she knew about her husband’s death.
