A second-grade boy is missing. He was swept away by the river, Nagano Chika, May 23, 7:00 a.m.
After a second-year elementary school boy left his home in Chikuma City, Nagano Prefecture, he was unable to find his whereabouts, and police and others searched for him as if he had been swept away by a river because his younger brother was rescued in a nearby river.
At about half past midnight, his father reported to the police that Nakamura, a second-year elementary school student living in Chikuma City, Nagano Prefecture, had left his home with his 4-year-old brother and had not been able to find out where he was going.
When police and others searched the area, they found his brother holding onto a tree branch in the nearby Chikuma River and were rescued.
There are no noticeable injuries and there is awareness, but the whereabouts of Shi-kun is not known.
In addition, the bicycle that Shi-kun was riding was found near the crown bridge about 10meters downstream from the place where the younger brother was found.
The two people left their homes around 5 p.m., and police and fire fighters are searching for about 30 people, thinking they were swept away by the river from the scene.
