Nancy Ng, a California woman who vanished during a yoga retreat in Guatemala, are questioning local authorities’ assertion that she drowned.
A video shown on “Good Morning America” depicts Ng, 29, kayaking near Lake Atitlan on October 19, moments before her disappearance.
The Guatemalan prosecutor’s office stated that Ng intended to swim in the lake and subsequently drowned. However, Ng’s family disputes this explanation, highlighting the silence of some witnesses and the delay in reporting her disappearance. Nicky Ng, Nancy’s sister, expressed frustration over the lack of forthcoming information from witnesses in the group.
The search for Ng, involving helicopters, drones, and boats, led by Black Wolf Helicopters’ Chris Sharpe, has covered most of the lake. Sharpe suggests the case is evolving into a criminal investigation due to the reluctance of key witnesses to provide information.
Meanwhile, the FBI has extended support, and the US State Department is liaising with Guatemalan authorities. Nancy Ng, a former law student and fitness enthusiast working with special-needs children, was on her second retreat with her sister, who recalled Nancy’s fondness for the serene surroundings and planned activities on the lake.
