A Singaporean diver, Rinta Paul Mukkam, has been reported missing after failing to surface with her group of 15 divers during a dive around 11.40am yesterday, in the waters of Gili Lawa near Komodo Island in Indonesia.

Rinta, believed to be a 40-year-old associate regional sales manager, is said to be an experienced diver who left for her diving trip on Wednesday.

Her brother, lawyer Roy Paul Mukkam, has appealed for help on Facebook and reported that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is involved in the matter and has organised a search and rescue team to find Rinta.

Rescue efforts were called off yesterday evening due to the lack of light and has resumed this morning.
