The body of Udom Homrotkla was recovered about 500 metres from the Tha Sak pier in Moo 4, Pa Khlok, confirmed rescue workers today. (See map below.)

Mr Udom’s wife, Ms Somjai, told police that her husband disappeared in the water at about 8pm while fishing for shrimp with his friend, Noppadon Maliphan, 43.

The two men started fishing at about 7pm, Ms Somjai said.

Lt Col Kittiphum Tinthalang of the Thalang Police was called to the scene last night, and arrived with Phuket Marine Police and Kusoldharm Foundation rescue workers and began searching for Mr Udom.
