The find was reported to Mr. Witthaya Marknakorn, a mechanic attached to the 10th office of marine and coastal resources, by Mr. Somsak Panthumet, president of Trang professional tourist guides, as he led a group on an island-hopping tour in the Andaman Sea.

Somsak reportedly took pictures of the eviscerated dead dugong as evidence to be handed over to the officials on shore. He was also told to tie the dead dugong to some floating containers to make it easier to relocate.
