SEOUL, South Korea – A cargo ship with South Korean and Filipino crew has gone missing in waters off Uruguay after making a distress call, Seoul’s foreign ministry said on Saturday, April 1.

The Stella Daisy with 8 South Korean and 16 Filipino crew members on board disappeared Friday after sending a text message that it was sinking, the ministry said.

“It remains unknown whether the crew escaped to safety,” a ministry official was quoted as saying by Yonhap news agency.

A search operation by Uruguayan coast guards was underway, it added.

The Stella Daisy is a large ore carrier (VLOC) that can carry more than 260,000 tonnes. – Rappler.com
