Indonesian navy sends Nomad and warships to look for missing fishing boat
"The three warships have been patrolling in water area suspected to be the location where the MV Rajawali sunk. However, they have not found any clues of the ship wreckage or the missing crew members, so far," Commander of the Bitung naval base VIII Commodore Edy Yusuf said here on Tuesday.
Edy Yusuf suspected the 12 crew members had been drifted away by sea waves toward east so the Indonesian Navy`s search and rescue (SAR) team continued to trace the area to that direction.
"The Indonesian Navy will continue to establish contacts with the Indonesian Air Force, the Police and the provincial SAR team during the rescue efforts," he said.
