The agent of Ghanaian winger Christian Atsu, Nana Sechere has said they have been able to locate the exact room of the winger but only found his pair of shoes. In a update today about the winger’s whereabouts, nine days after the earthquake, the agent said search is still continuing.

“It has been 9 days since the earthquake and we still have not located Christian. I am at the quake site in Hatay with Christian’s family. The scenes are unimaginable and our hearts are broken for all the people affected,” he said.

“During my time here we have been able to locate Christian Atsu’s exact room location, and we have found two pairs of his shoes,” he revealed.

He said there has been confirmation of five lives through thermal imagery but that is not he accepted results for the confirmation of life. Only through “sight, smell and sound” can life be confirmed.

“Yesterday we received confirmation that thermal imagery was showing signs of up to 5 lives, however, I am told that the only real confirmation of life is through sight, smell and sound, and unfortunately we were not able to locate Christian.

“This is a difficult situation and we are extremely grateful to all the Turkish and foreign rescue teams, local civilians and volunteers for their efforts and response in rescuing survivors. However, we urgently need more resources, including a translator, on the ground.

“Things are moving incredibly slow and as a result of that many rescues are being delayed, and lives are being lost due to the lack of resources available to the workers. It is unfortunate that the club is not on the ground with us, side by side, in the search for Christian.”

Nana Sechere lamented the lack of full support from the club as they are not available at the scene of the incident to offer support.

“Their position and influence, accompanied with their local knowledge would be extremely helpful. We implore the President of the club and mayor of Hatay, Lütfü Savaş to provide additional resources to speed up the rescue efforts as a priority.”
