Thailand: Twelve boys and their football coach who went missing in caves in Thailand for nine days, have been found by divers and all of them safe and alive, BBC reported. 

The group of football team under 19 and their coach went missing in side the cave which lead to the search operations by Seal teams which arrived for United Kingdom as well to help. 

According to BBC the group was discovered by two British divers on a ledge in a cavern after a marathon search operation in the Tham Luang caves in Chiang Rai.

“The challenge now will be to extract the party safely, with rising water and mud impeding access,” BBC report said.

Families of the missing group, who have been waiting for the team had a sigh of relief.

The report says that rescuers had hoped they would find safety on a ledge in an underground chamber nicknamed Pattaya Beach but they were found 400m (440 yards) away having moved to higher ground to avoid the rising water.
