The Director of the National Civil Protection System (SINAPROC ), Arturo Alvarado, said "several search teams" from the SINAPROC and the National Police are still trying to find the Dutch tourists, 22 year old Lisanne Froon and 21 year old Kris Kremers.
Alvarado said despite their efforts and even searching with a helicopter, "we could not give them."
The aerial search had to be interrupted due to bad weather yesterday.
The SINAPROC Director said the families of the two missing women have not yet arrived in Panama, but the Dutch Ambassador to Panama, Wiebe de Boer, had gone to the area of the disappearance.
Alvarado said their search continues, regardless if they are dealing with two women who are simply lost, or if they might have been abducted.
The area where the two young Dutch women were last seen is a prized for its mild climate and ecotourism. (Panama America)
Editor's Comment: They went hiking on Volcan Baru and went missing. People frequently underestimate that mountain.
