A combined force of 200 zoo employees, police, soldiers and district officials continued the search of a Chinese tourist after she went missing yesterday afternoon while visiting the Sriracha Tiger Zoo with her tour group.

Mrs Gao Li Ping, 35, in black sunglasses and hat, was wearing white shirt and red shorts when she went missing yesterday afternoon.

The last place she was seen in the CCTV camera of the zoo was at the pond of the zoo.

The pond is used to store water for use during the hot season.

Chonburi police commander Pol Maj Gen Ampol Buarabporn ruled out suicide theory with reason she might want to stay alone awhile for going to the pond by herself.

However the police have sought cooperation from divers to search for her to make sure she didn't misstep and fall into the pond accidentally.
