Car driven by missing Bhutanese recovered, three dead bodies found

Reports coming from various local media confirmed that police have recovered the black Acura car driven by the three missing Bhutanese in the Spokane River. Police also recovered three dead bodies from the scene. However, their identity is not known by the time BNS filed this report.

The missing faces.

Spokane Police confirmed the number plate of the missing vehicle to the online edition of KHQ.

“Authorities tell KHQ that the plates match that of a vehicle that was reported missing in June linked to three Bhutanese refugees,” said the report.

There has been a fear that all three youths missing since June 11 from Washington have been dead. However, our reporter in WA and families of missing youths are yet to confirm the casualty independently.

Tanka Dhital from WA, who was heading towards the site following a call from police, was 100 miles away from the mishap area at the time of filing this report. “I am with the family members of missing youths and will reach the spot in some 90 minutes,” he told Bhutan News Service over phone.

According to Dhital, confirmation about the dead bodies would only be possible after the DNA-test.

The extensive search operation to find the missing youth – Krishna L Dhital (21), Dilli Ram Bhattarai (28) and Krishna Dhakal (17) – resettled in Washington have been underway.

  1. Can’t wait to read good news about the missing boys in BNS. Lot of thanks for the the update. I am sure that they will be found soon in good health.

  2. It is very sad to hear about the mishap. May the family be granted courage to overcome the tragedy.
    May I state a concern to the BNS editor,
    What does the three bumbers in the headlines refer to? It is known that only one car was involved since day 1 until the further information are made public.
    Since there is google to mushroomly breed the sources, the focus on accuracy of a news would more accredit a news agency and win reliability to the readers.
    Hope it will be made clear,
    Sincerely,
    Shankar
