BELURAN: The elderly woman reported missing in the forest near Kampung Tandu Batu, Jambongan Island almost five days ago, was found safe on Thursday.

Members of the Search and Rescue (SAR) team located her about 2.5km from her house about 11.08am. She was unharmed but appeared weak when they found her.

The SAR operation ended at 11.40am after she was taken back to the village and handed over to her family members. Eighty-four year old Jamelia Ungung was reported missing after she went to the forest not far from her house to look for herbs at 2pm on Jan 13.

Her family members with the assistance of villagers set out to search for her when she did not return home. They lodged a police report on Jan 14 after futile attempts to look for her.

A SAR operation involving personnel from the Royal Malaysian Police, Armed Forces, Beluran Fire and Rescue station, RELA and local villagers was activated following the police report.

Much to the relief of everybody back at the village waiting for words on her, she was located by rescuers sitting near some shrubs on the third day of the SAR operation on Thursday.
