KUCHING: Two participants of an adventure challenge held at Salcra Bajo Training Centre in Lundu have been reported missing at around 10.53am this morning.
The Fire and Rescue Department (Bomba) in a statement said one of the victims managed to call 999 to inform them that they lost their way along the designated path while attempting the challenge.
After the call ended, Bomba tried to make further contact with the victims (one female and one male), but failed.
A team from the Lundu fire station were dispatched to the scene and were later joined by two other Bomba personnel, who were incidentally taking part in the challenge as well.
It was learned that the challenge involves a number of categories, such as an individual duathlon, individual trail run and individual mountain biking, in addition to the main team events.
