[www.inewsguyana.com] – The search operation to locate Gyaneshwarie Laleta Sivinand, who was reported missing at Kaieteur National Park (KNP) since September 01, continued on Thursday and turned out to be futile.
iNews understands that the search team has been further enhanced with the arrival of a Special Forces team from the Guyana Defence Force. According to the Ministry of the Presidency, as of 17:00 hrs on Thursday evening, September 3, the missing woman had not yet been found.
The woman was part of a group of persons on a tour, organised by a local tour operator – Air Services Limited. Reports indicate that Sivinand was seen crying while on the phone on the plane; however when the aircraft landed at the Falls, she appeared perky.
It has been reported that the flight had a total of nine passengers and sometime during the tour, she was discovered to be missing.
Contrary to what the woman had told people on the trip, she is neither a doctor nor an environmentalist. As a matter of fact, she is a former employee of Laparkan and Singer’s.
As a result of her being missing, all tours to the Kaieteur Falls have been suspended.
