Army special forces checking Kaieteur Gorge for missing tourist

A team from the Guyana Defence Force (GDF) Special Forces yesterday descended into the Kaieteur Gorge to continue the search to locate tourist Gyaneshwarie Laleta Sivanand , who was reported missing at Kaieteur National Park on Tuesday.

The search is very dangerous as they have to carefully navigate their way through the extremely rugged and rocky area and the Kaieteur Falls at full flow, the Ministry of the Presidency said in a statement last evening.

Up to 4pm yesterday, there was no further word on their efforts, the ministry added
