A search operation has been launchedÂ for two people believedÂ to have fallen into the Menengai Crater.
A report by The StandardÂ indicates that the two had gone on a walk after attendingÂ prayers atÂ Kirima-top Presbyterian Church of East Africa.
They had travelled from Kitale for Easter prayers at the church before they went missing.
Other worshippers, who had attended the prayer session,Â informed the police and locals about what had befallen the two.Â
Kenya Red CrossÂ NakuruÂ Chairperson Njeri Muhia disclosed that the search teamÂ spotted one of the victims trapped on a tree branch. However, it was unclear whether he was dead or alive.
â€śOur team rushed to the site but only managed to trace one person. However, the rescuers could not get to him because of the steep nature of the crater,â€ťÂ she stated.Â
Muhia further stated that they had intensified efforts to resucu the man who had been spotted and find the other missing person.
The incident was confirmed byÂ Bahati Police Commander Jacinta Muthoni who revealed thatÂ Â they had sought help from their counterpartsÂ in KitaleÂ locate the missing people.Â
She also asked visitors to be carefulÂ while walking or driving around the crater.Â
