Thai school children with their teachers pray for their missing classmates from the grounds of Mae Sai Prasitsart school, near Tham Luang cave in Khun Nam Nang Non Forest Park in Chiang Rai, on Monday.
Chiang Rai provincial governor Narongsak Osatanakorn said the 13 are in the process of being rescued, but warned they are not out of danger yet.
"We found all 13 safe. we will take care of them until they can move", Narongsak Osottanakorn told reporters, who broke into spontaneous applause and cheering. The governor said engineers are continuing to drain the cave network as doctors and nurses contine to check on the health of the boys and the coach.
As the days wore on with the group missing, distraught family members had placed fruit, desserts, sugary drinks and candies on mats near the cave as an offering to the spirits which some people believe protect the cave and the forest. The team was found about 440 yards away, having sought protection from the rising waters in a spot with a higher elevation.

Then the boy breaks into simple English, saying, "Eat, eat, eat", to which another voice responds in Thai that he already told that to the rescuer.
"So we will run two operations, opening this channel to get through and maintaining so all the rescue team can get inside and work there".

Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha thanked the worldwide experts and rescuers who helped locate the missing for their "tremendous efforts".
