Divers from the Navy, supplied with oxygen tanks and food, have been looking for the group of Thai teenagers who are of the same football team since Tuesday.

The group of boys are all aged between 11 and 16. They entered the cave with the team's coach on Saturday.

Rising waters meant that the search for the team was halted until Tuesday.

Authorities are currently at the cave reducing the water levels by flushing the water from within the cave to outside surroundings.

However, the constant rainfall is hampering these efforts in addition to the lack of visability inside the cave.

Whilst the young boys were starved of food, they have access to clean water supply inside the Tham Luang Nang Non cave.

This large tourist attraction goes many kilometers below ground.
