Dawn search finds missing crewmen in Stanley (updated)

A search operation involving a helicopter and private launches took place around Stanley Harbour in the Falklands in the early hours of Sunday 12 February, reports Penguin News. Seven crewmen missing from a foreign fishing vessel were eventually found safe and well.

No mention is made of who was flying the rescue helicopter. Prince William is serving a brief tour of duty on the islands as a search-and-rescue pilot.

Update: Penguin News now reports the crewmen, all Vietnamese, had jumped into the sea and gone ashore because they wished to contact their families. Read the update here.
