Wales On Sunday - - NEWS -

SEARCHERS have found a miss­ing sub­ma­rine deep in the At­lantic a year af­ter it dis­ap­peared with 44 crew­men aboard, the Ar­gen­tinian navy has said.

The ARA San Juan was de­tected more than 2,600 feet deep in wa­ters off the Valdes Penin­sula in Ar­gen­tine Patag­o­nia, a state­ment said.

The navy said a “pos­i­tive iden­ti­fi­ca­tion” had been made by a re­mote-op­er­ated sub­mersible from the Amer­i­can ship Ocean In­fin­ity, which was hired for the lat­est search for the miss­ing ves­sel.

The dis­cov­ery was an­nounced just two days af­ter fam­i­lies of the miss­ing sailors held a com­mem­o­ra­tion one year af­ter the sub dis­ap­peared on Novem­ber 15, 2017.
