"I think it is also important to remember that these athletes are guests here in Australia and are still within their visas and have the right to travel freely", he said.

Mr Nso said the team's officials and remaining athletes, including basketball players and two weightlifters, have already left Australia.

Gold Coast, April 10 (IANS): It was a field day for Indian men's and women's hockey teams as they defeated Malaysia 2-1 and South Africa 1-0 respectively to enter the semi-finals at the 21st Commonwealth Games (CWG) here on Tuesday.

Three athletes left the village on Sunday night before two more departed on Monday. Three of them are weightlifters and five are boxers.

A Queensland Police spokesman told news.com.au that authorities are not on the lookout for the athletes because "they haven't committed any offence" and the athletes still hold a valid visa.

"They are keeping a watching brief on these athletes", she said.

"We continue to cooperate with the police".

Illegal immigration is a highly contentious political issue in Australia and Peter Dutton, the country's Home Affairs Minister, issued a warning to athletes in January that they would be deported if they overstayed.

Adding to the confusion of the situation, a Cameroon official told reporters at the Games boxing venue none of his athletes were missing.

Cameroon say eight of their 42-strong Commonwealth Games team are missing, with one boxer's failure to appear at an event gifting his Canadian rival a medal.

"It's obviously disappointing that some of the athletes that have come, didn't compete", Grevemberg said.

But this is not the first time athletes have disappeared during major sporting events, as 25 competitors went missing in the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne, while 26 disappeared during the 2002 Games in Manchester.

The 2018 Games are now underway in the Gold Coast in the Australian State of Queensland.

"Obviously if there is a breach then Peter Dutton and the department will deal with it".

Seven left the athletes village during the London Olympic Games in 2012.
