The victim, identified as Nazri Omar from Bangi Perdana, was reported missing at 1pm by his group of climbers after he got separated from them at Km 8 of the mountain trail while descending from the summit.
Upon receiving the missing person report, the Ranau Fire and Rescue Department immediately dispatched the Mountain Search and Rescue (Mosar) team together with Sabah Parks personnel and mountain guides to search for Nazri.
