KOH TAO: -- Police in Koh Tao spoke to more than twenty foreign dive company owners and individual divers yesterday as the hunt for Valentina Novozhyonova continued.

 

Police have various CCTV footage and were able to narrow down the area where Valentina is thought to have gone free diving. It is quite near to where she was staying at Koh Tao Hostel, Thairath reported.

 

Tomorrow the divers are expected to help in further searches of the area around Ao Chalok Ban Kao.

 

Police have examined CCTV from three areas but apart from a promising sighting on a convenience store camera they cannot be sure of the images they have found.

 

They have collected her clothes from her room to compare with images of western women caught on the CCTV footage.

 

She is believed to have come to the island from Chumporn on the 9th of February. Efforts are still being made to find the exact vessel she boarded.

 

Police are also following up reports about her attending a party.
