Jordan William Scott

A 30-year-old American tourist who was last seen swimming in a reservoir in Surat Thani has been found dead.

Rescuers found the body of Jordan William Scott, 30, at Ratchaprapa Dam in Khao Sok national park. He was discovered at 19:50 on Monday evening.

Earlier reports said that Mr Scott had been on a day-trip to the Ratchaprapa Dam in Surat Thani province. He reportedly went there on with his girlfriend and other friends and disappeared on June 10th.

Witnesses told police that Mr Scott was swimming in the water normally. At around 12:00, he got out and jumped back into the water. From that point on, nobody saw Mr Scott again.

Officials have planned to meet local boat operators at the dam to make sure that everybody follows the safety requirements, Spring News reported.

The American Embassy in Bangkok has been notified.
