Avinash Sawant, chief of Thane regional disaster management cell (RDMC) said, "Soon after reaching the spot we started the search operation in the Mumbra creek but unable to track the man and later after taking permission from the police officials and Thane fire brigade officials we called off the search operation due to high tide."

One of the officials from Thane fire brigade said, " We have tried our level best to search the man in the creek but we were unable to find it. We think that he might have been swept away far off due to the current."
