MERSING, April 9 ― The search and rescue (SAR) operation for the 14-year-old Dutch diver Nathen Renze Chesters who went missing in the waters of Pulau Tokong Sanggol last Wednesday has been called off at 1.30pm today. Mersing Maritime Zone director, Maritime Commander Khairul Nizam Misran said the operation, which started today at 7am, was halted at 6. Mersing district police chief Supt Cyril Edward Nuing said this was following the information and investigations findings that the British diver Adrian Peter Chesters and French national Alexia Alexandra Molina were at a position of 16 nautical miles north of Bintan Island, Indonesia, when they were found safe early this morning. “Currently, no new information has been received from our airborne or seaborne assets, including the last flight at 1pm. He said it was about 70 nautical miles or 100 kilometres from the location they were reported missing. He said the agencies involved in the operation were the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM), Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency (MMEA), Special Service Group (GGK) Iskandar Camp Mersing, Fire and Rescue Department (JBPM), Malaysian Civil Defence Force and Fisheries Department. “Based on this information, we are of the opinion that the search efforts should focus on Indonesian waters and the operation in Malaysian waters is temporarily suspended. Esther, who was accompanied by her husband, Alexandre Molina, 55 and youngest child, was optimistic that Alexia,18, was alive, saying that her daughter, just like her other two children, loves the sea, swimming and water activities.

“Our Indonesian counterpart has been informed of this matter and they will take over (the operation) in Indonesian waters. However, we will focus on the assets available tomorrow. Khairul Nizam added that the search area, which has exceeded 1,000 nautical miles, will be expanded again tomorrow from 7am. However, our assets at sea are always at the ready,” he told a press conference at the Carilamat base set up at the Mersing district council public jetty here today. ― Bernama You May Also Like .
