An Interpol officer from the National Police Headquarters has joined in search efforts for a 38-year-old Russian, Dmitry Lazuth, who disappeared while swimming on Pandawa Beach in South Kuta on Sunday, January 13, 2013.

The  Interpol Officer, immediately after arriving in Bali, has begun gathering information and taking statements surrounding the man’s disappearance while swimming.

Also interviewed by Interpol were members of the search and rescue team (SAR). Quoted by, a member of the SAR team, Wayan Rusdi, said on Wednesday, January 16, 2013, “I was asked many things in connection with the events surrounding the Russian and the various steps taken to find the missing many on Pantai Pandawa.”

Rusdi said the search for the missing Russian fisherman has been assisted by the police and local citizens and included large areas sweeps of the ocean seeking to recover the man’s body.

Meanwhile, the man’s wife and infant child have waited ashore while search efforts continue. Press reports say the woman, desperate for her husband’s return, has consulted Balinese mystics and performed simple Bali-Hindu ceremonies on the shore.

Rusdi told the press that the woman has said she must return to Russia with her husband and child on January 25, 2013. If her husband or his body is not found by that time, she will return to Russian with an official letter of explanation confirming his death by drowning.

Rusdi said, “If the victim’s wife cannot bring a letter of explanation from Indonesian authorities, they will be banned from entering Russian territory.”

Lazuth went swimming during a period in which he was advised by lifeguards not to swim into the large waves crashing onto the shore. Ignoring that advice, the man was later swept out to sea by the waves and strong currents.

Efforts continue to recover the man’s body from the ocean surrounding Bali’s southernmost peninsula.
