Naew Na reported that around 50 police and rescue officials conducted a search for a Spanish tourist lost in the area of the Na Muang 2 waterfall on Koh Samui. 
 
"Leed" had phoned the 1155 Tourist Police hotline to report that he was lost. He said he was hungry and thirsty before his phone went dead. 
 
In difficult hilly and slippery conditions - made treacherous by the dark and rain - the rescue team searched for 2 hours before calling it off for the night. 
 
They planned to resume the search this morning. 
 
The tourist's rented motorcycle has been found parked on a track.
