Search will resume today for a woman who is believed to have fallen into the ocean by Dyrhólaey promontory, South Iceland, reports. She has been missing since Friday night, a week ago.

According to Chief Superintendent Sveinn Rúnar Kristjánsson, at the South Iceland Police Department, the search area to be covered stretches from Þjórsá river in the west to Skaftá river in the east.

Conditions for searching should be good today, with low tide at noon and decent weather. It is not clear how many people will participate in the search.

The woman, Rima Grunskyté Feliksasdóttir, recently moved to Hella, South Iceland, from Vík í Mýrdal.
