Briefly News spoke to Mike Myers, the CEO of Mobi Claw and asked him about the discovery.

He said that in circumstances such as these where the location is not easy to reach, a great deal of preparation is needed in order to prevent further injury to those who are investigating the scene.

"From an incident perspective, there is a lot of preparation that goes into such a search. There are dangerous factors and those need to be considered, such as weather, distance, heat, terrain, snakes, cellphone signal etc. so you need to prepare, including having a paramedic with you, ensure the right clothing, enough water and chocolate bars, having people know you’re down there in the event of no cellphone signal and you aren’t heard from for a certain time period."

eNCA reported that foul play has not been ruled out and Mike Myers did not want to speculate on details of the case and said that the police would reveal more information when it is released.
