SIBU: A second search and rescue operation for a crab hunter who was reported missing in a river in Daro on Friday (Nov 20) is still in progress.
The state Fire and Rescue Department, in its daily update, said they had continued with the search and rescue (SAR) operation at 6.30am on Saturday (Nov 21) for Johari Yusup, 30, from Kampung Baru, Daro.
But the victim was yet to be found so far.
Johari was reported to have gone to the river to search for crabs at 9am on Friday.
However, his family members lodged a police report when he failed to return by 9pm.
"The Fire and Rescue Department subsequently launched a SAR at 12.26am on Saturday but had to stop at 1.45am due to poor visibility," it said.
Daro assemblyman Safiee Ahmad was also at the SAR operation centre to monitor the situation on Saturday.
The rivers in Daro have an abundance of crabs. Locals often catch them to sell in Sibu.
