Hunter's body found near Moruga campsite, friend contacts police

Police are working to recover the body of a man who died in a forested area in Moruga on Thursday.

Officers were informed of the incident by Kevin Bachoo of Friendship Drive, California.

Bachoo told police he was at a hunting camp in Saunders Trace, Moruga with his associate known only as "Flock". He said around 11 am, Flock left the camp to set trap guns but did not return.

Bachoo contacted another friend identified as Vidal Balrajsingh, who formed a search party to find the missing man. Flock's body was discovered approximately 30 minutes away from the campsite.

Due to the dilapidated road conditions, the heavily forested terrain and the lack of communication services, police have been unable to proceed further. They have since requested assistance.
