The body of a Russian tourist was found in the central Vietnam province of Khanh Hoa on Saturday morning, five days after he went missing while scuba diving.

 

Twenty-seven-year-old Daniil Repjev's body was discovered some 800 meters to the southeast of Mun Islet at Nha Trang Bay by fisherman Nguyen Van Sao.

 

On Monday Repjev and ten other tourists took a diving tour around Mun Islet held by the Nha Trang Town-based Rua Lan Dai Duong (Ocean Diving Turtle) Company.

 

However, after the trip finished, the Russian man jumped off the boat of his own will without wearing diving suit and went missing, according to the company.

 

The company said that they had cooperated with local agencies in looking for him, but he was nowhere to be found.

 

Repjev's body will now be sent back to Russia after all necessary procedures are completed.
