Search for man overboard unsuccessful

25 April 2007, 7:15am

The search for a 54-year-old crewman missing overboard from a Korean fishing vessel is expected to be called off this morning after no sign of him was found last night.

Searchers covered around 20 square kilometres until about 3am this morning but all vessels have now left the area. The Korean vessel Pantas N.o 1 is expected to arrive in Bluff on 1 May where further information will be sought from her Master.
