The Emergency Management Agency started the search of the missing person as soon as the notification was received.

Groups of the Fire and Rescue Department working in the disaster zone were involved in the process as soon as possible, which, despite the difficult terrain and the outflowing river, inspected the water surface and the shoreline of the Aragvi.

As part of the search-and-rescue measures of the foreign citizen, the employees of the service found the body of a man”, - reads the statement.
