One of two men from Myanmar who went swimming in a reservoir in Chalong late Sunday afternoon remains missing despite an extensive effort to find him.

Kusoldharm rescue workers were notified of the incident at the Klong Katha reservoir behind Wat Luang Pu Supa (Silsuparam Temple) at 4pm. On arrival they spoke to 23-year-old Myanmar national called Joe, who told them that he and his friend, 25- year-old Ao, had gone swimming in the 11-metre-deep reservoir. Ao apparently became exhausted and disappeared under the water. 
Rescuers failed to find Ao and the search was called off at midnight. It will continue today.
