Taranaki Daily News - - National News -

A Sealord crew mem­ber is miss­ing and a search is un­der way in the Pa­cific Ocean near the coast off Cape Pal­liser. The crew mem­ber did not re­port for duty on one of the com­pany’s fish­ing ves­sels, the Otakou, yes­ter­day morn­ing. A ‘‘full muster’’ was con­ducted to con­firm he was miss­ing be­fore a search be­gan and au­thor­i­ties were no­ti­fied, Sealord said. A Res­cue Co-or­di­na­tion Cen­tre New Zealand spokesman said it was no­ti­fied about 11.30am, and the man might have been in the wa­ter up to 50 min­utes be­fore that.
