Kusoldharm rescue workers together with Lt Col Sanit arrived at the scene to find the body of Puea Anupan, 58, from Sisaket floating face down in the water. He was wearing black trousers, brown long sleeve T-shirt, black shoes and camouflaged hat.

Lt Col Sanit said, “We questioned his wife, child and work colleagues. They told us that at 8am yesterday (Jan 31), Mr Puea went out to work at the golf course as normal. At 10am he did not come back home for lunch so relatives went to search for him.
