A 52-year-old man from Pasaphu in Kangpara, Trashigang who went missing on July 10 was found dead at Neyra Ama stream yesterday.

Police, volunteers and villagers launched a massive search for four days after he was reported missing.

Sources say the man was last seen at Gongphu where the villagers were maintaining the farm road. He had left for home after the workers dispersed.

His body was found about 4km away from the place called Aranada.

“He is suspected to have washed away by the Phochhu stream while he was crossing,” a source said.  “These days, the stream has swollen due to continuous rain for more than eight days.”

The body was handed over to the deceased’s family.
