MMEA seeks Indonesian help in search for missing crew of MT Pablo

THE Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA) is seeking help from Indonesia’s Search and Rescue National Agency (Basarnas) to locate three missing crew members of MT Pablo, which caught fire off Tanjung Sedili last Monday.

Johor Maritime director First Admiral (Maritime) Nurul Hizam Zakaria said a simulation done using the Search and Rescue Optimal Planning System (Sarops) showed that the three could have drifted into Tanjung Pinang waters in Indonesia.
