Three lost divers found unharmed

Three people reported missing while scuba diving near Alimatha Resort in Vaavu Atoll on Saturday (June 1) have been found, local media has reported.

The divers were found “not too far” from the resort around 9:00pm on Saturday and had not sustained any injuries, a spokesperson for Alimatha told Sun Online.

The three individuals – two tourists from Dubai and a dive instructor from Italy – were first reported missing after going for a dive at a reef called ‘Bolikey Faru’.

The Maldives National Defence Force (MNDF) Coast Guard aided the resort’s search.
