Reports say all are alive

According to reports from CNN, Thai, and global rescuers, have apparently found the 12 boys and their football coach who have been missing inside a flooded mountain cave in Thailand for more than a week.

The governor of the region said that all of the 13 missing were all safe.

Divers from a Thai navy SEAL unit were within 500 metres of a chamber containing an elevated rock where they boys might have sought refuge.

The boys range in age from 11 to 16 years. They have been missing for 9 days.

NOTE this is a developing story but after 9 days, let's hope the report is true.
