For the third consecutive day the Joint Task Force (FTC) reactivates this Tuesday 13 September, the search for the lowest that disappeared when he was dragged by the rising of a ravine in San Miguelito last Sunday.

Yesterday Monday after a day of work, which began at 6 a.m. and that culminated after 6:00 p.m., no results were obtained.

The director of the National System of Civil Protection (SINAPROC), who heads the operational, reported that they will not rest until they find the less than five years.

This fact remains to the next of kin of the child in suspense, due to that still keep the hope that is with life.

All this happened last Sunday, when the product of the strong rains, the quebrada Nazareno rose and the child, who was with two other minors, was dragged by the current.

The neighbors of the sector were only able to save the other two children who were with him.

Since that day, the FTC has not ceased to look for the minor and have already done tours by several rivers, where they could have reached the lowest.

It is planned to use a boat when the tide comes in order to make the monitoring in some areas.

The quebrada Nazareno passes through the community of Sugar Loaf, the Great Station, down the river and Panama Viejo
