French Fishing Group Reported Missing in Thailand Found Safe on Koh Maravichai

Four French nationals who went missing after venturing on a fishing trip in Thailand have been located safe and sound. The group set out from Jomtien Beach towards Koh Maravichai on May 1st, 2024.

Following the discovery of their empty boat near Koh Si Chang, a search operation was initiated. The individuals, Adrien Simon (38), Mehdi Benchoula (47), Vincent Ferrer (30), and Stefan Stauat (32), were found unharmed on Koh Maravichai the following day.

The rescue mission involved several local agencies, including the Pattaya Tourist Police and Pattaya Marine Rescue Volunteers. Subsequently, the four men were safely transported to a nearby beach in Sattahip in good health.

Mr. Simon detailed that the group had engaged in diving and fishing activities off Koh Maravichai, leaving their boat anchored. Unfortunately, the boat became untethered and drifted away during their absence. Unable to locate the vessel upon resurfacing, the men spent a night on the island until aid reached them.
