Missing Russian tourist - authorities turn to fortune tellers
KOH TAO: -- Authorities searching for missing Russian tourist Valentina Novozhyonova had another fruitless day in the sea and on land.
So they have now turned to fortune tellers. Three of Koh Tao's best mystics were contacted and asked where they think Valentina might be, Thairath reported.
They all agreed independently that she was in the sea.
So the sea search has been intensified.
Meanwhile Surat governor Apichart Bunsrirot has ordered measures be stepped up to find the lady who liked swimming and diving. Apichart was due on the island later yesterday.
Valentina has been missing since she was caught on CCTV outside a convenience store near the Koh Tao Hostel where she was staying. That was 6am on the 15th of February.
She was due to leave there on the 16th but it was some time after when the owner reported her missing. Most of her possessions were found in her room including her passport and phone.
Yesterday searches were made on land and in the sea with foreign dive companies and Russian divers helping out.
Officials noted that there were heavy seas and winds on February 15th to 17th when Valentina is thought to have gone missing.
