The search for two more Singaporeans reported missing following Friday's earthquake in Ranau resumed at 6am on Tuesday (Jun 9).
Ranau district police chief DSP Mohd Farhan Lee Abdullah said more than 10 personnel have arrived at Laban Rata.
"Today the weather seems fine albeit some fog, but it isn't as bad as yesterday and our team has already landed at Laban Rata to resume the operation," he told Bernama.
On Monday, a mission by a search and rescue team to bring down two more bodies from Mount Kinabalu was forced to be called off because of poor visibility due to thick fog around the mountain.
Sabah is also considering the possibility of only allowing children aged above 15 years to climb Mount Kinabalu in the wake of the death of six children in Friday's quake.
State education director Jame Alip said he had spoken about the matter to state Tourism, Culture and Environment Minister Masidi Manjun, who is also the state executive councillor in charge of education.
As of Tuesday morning, 16 victims have been confirmed dead, comprising six from Malaysia, seven from Singapore, one from the Philippines, one from China and one from Japan.
The 5.9-magnitude earthquake occurred 16 kilometres northwest of Ranau around 7.15am on Friday.
