KHABAROVSK, October 15 (Itar-Tass) —— Helicopters, boats and ground groups are continuing to search for missing three policemen who disappeared in the lower Amur River area on Thursday night, the Emergencies Ministry’s Far Eastern regional centre told Itar-Tass.
Three Mi-8 helicopters of the Emergencies Ministry and the Interior Ministry, 15 motor boats, three ships and more than 50 people from EMERCOM, transport police and other services are searching for the missing people. An An-74 plane will fly out from Khabarovsk on Monday to participate in the operation, head of the press service of the regional centre Sergei Viktorov told Itar-Tass.
The search is unsuccessful so far. The fate of the three policemen, who were sent from Khabarovsk to work in Nikolayevsk-on-Amur, remains unknown.
The policemen aboard a boat patrolled the river in the operation to prevent illegal fishing. Contact with them was lost on Thursday night. The policemen and their boat have not been found since then.
