Yesterday, as police and volunteers in boats searched the Tha Chin River for the baby’s clothes, which may have been dropped there by any kidnappers, two sniffer dogs from the Police Dog Section, dubbed “Raptor” and “Contra,” joined the land search.
According to Pol Cpt. Suvit Ardul, deputy inspector of the Police Dog Section, the search was concentrated on a house, a fish pond, a residence, and the area where baby diapers were discovered.
Given that it has been 18 days since the child vanished, he acknowledged that it might be difficult for the two dogs to find the child.
Last night, Pol Gen Surachate Hakparn, the national deputy police chief, paid a visit to the Bang Luang police station in the Bang Len district to urge the authorities to expedite their investigation into the circumstances surrounding the baby’s disappearance and make an effort to apprehend those responsible.
The child’s parents have emerged as the police’s top suspects. Both have undergone multiple hours-long rounds of questioning as well as polygraph tests, but they continue to maintain their innocence.
The search, which has so far turned up no sign of the infant, has used drones and a submersible.
