US, Philippines Make Joint Search for Missing US Marine

MANILA – Teams from the United States and the Philippines made a joint search on Saturday for a US marine belonging to the crew of the USS Essex who recently disappeared when the ship was sailing through the Sulu Sea.

The USS Essex, a Wasp-class amphibious assault ship, reported that the marine had fallen overboard Thursday morning, according to a statement from the US fleet in the Pacific, without explaining how he fell.

Since then, both countries’ navies have searched through an area of 3,000 square nautical miles.

“All of our Sailors, Marines, and available assets aboard the USS Essex have been and will continue to be involved in this incredibly important search and rescue operation,” said Captain Gerald Olin, head of the search mission, according to the statement.

The US Navy has informed the missing marine’s family of the incident.

The Sulu Sea has an area of 420,000 square kilometers (162,162 sq miles) and is located between Malaysia and the Philippine archipelago.
