More athletes go missing at Commonwealth Games

Helen Housby and Joanne Harten drained 27 points each, with shooting percentages in the high 80s, as England took an early lead against the Silver Ferns - which they never lost and only built across four quarters. "We have no idea which direction they headed in".

After initial reports of five athletes unaccounted for, Cameroon's chef de mission Victor Agbo Nso confirmed on Wednesday the number had grown to eight.

And Australia also won Bronze in the team final of the Rythmic Gymnastics, thanks to the Women's team of Enid Sung, Danielle Prince and Alexandra Kiroi-Bogatyreva.

But because all have Australian visas until May 15, no crime has yet been committed.

They left in waves, with three going missing on the night of April 8, another two vanishing on April 9 before the remaining group left at night on April 10.

"My opponent didn't show up at the weigh-in this morning", he posted on Instagram.

"The rules and requirements the Australian Government has", Mr Beattie said.

Defending champion and Jitu Rai, the other Indian in the contest, put on view an extremely disappointing performance.

Commonwealth Games organisers called for competitors to respect the law, mindful of the fact that more than 100 athletes overstayed their visas at the 2000 Sydney Olympics.

However, the situation has been deemed serious enough for Border Force to be contacted.

Peter Beattie, chairman of the local organizing committee, said it was not a surprise.

Australians Chris McHugh and Damien Schumann beat Canada to win the first beach volleyball gold medal at the Commonwealth Games.

Federation chief executive David Grevemberg said that the Cameroonian athletes are within their visas and "have the right to travel freely".

A Cameroon team spokesman said 14 athletes who had finished their events had already flown home, but there were others still waiting to compete in wrestling and boxing.

"These athletes are guests here in Australia at this time".

The news wasn't any better at field hockey, where New Zealand's men's team lost to archrivals Australia 2-1, allowing the Australians to finish in first place in their pool.

The same thing happened during the 2012 Olympic Games in London when seven athletes from Cameroon went missing.

In some cases athletes applied for asylum.

Pendrel elected not to take part in the Gold Coast Games.
