Search for Missing Argentine Submarine Focused on Mystery Object

BUENOS AIRES – The internationally supported search for an Argentine submarine that went missing 26 days ago is currently focused on an object detected at a depth of 700 meters (2,295 ft.), the South American nation’s navy said Monday.

“There is nothing new. We’re working on an element that (US research vessel) Atlantis is reviewing at this moment,” the navy spokesman, Capt. Enrique Balbi, said during his daily briefing for the media.

Despite poor weather in the search effort, the international team looking for the ARA San Juan continues to work using tools such as remote-control probes, he said.

Six vessels are deployed in the search zone, designated based on the sub’s last reported position, course and speed and the location of an explosion that roughly coincided with the San Juan’s disappearance, Balbi said.

Navy headquarters last heard from the submarine on Nov. 15 and it was eight days later that authorities declared the 44 crewmembers presumed dead.

The San Juan went missing en route from Ushuaia, the world’s southernmost city, to its home port in Mar del Plata, southeast of Buenos Aires.

Two sailors assigned to the San Juan who were not aboard went the submarine disappeared met Monday with Defense Minister Oscar Aguad, the navy spokesman said.
