Karon Police were notified at 7.30pm that a tourist was missing while another tourist had been rescued from surf near the Karon roundabout.

Emergency responders and police arrived at the scene to find that lifeguards had rescued 23 year old female Ukranian Inna Lutsyk. She was taken to Patong Hospital.

26 year old male Indonesia Andryono Tanuwijaya remains missing after attempts to find him failed late yesterday afternoon.

Ms Lutsyk and Andryono arrived in Thailand on August 23 and were scheduled to depart on August 29.

Witnesses say they went swimming in the sea. Lifeguards realised they were having trouble, bringing Ms Lutsyk back to shore but weren’t able to find Mr Tanuwijaya.
