Passenger disappears from inter-island ferry

Date Posted: 2006-12-18

An elderly Haebaru Town man is missing after disappearing from a ferry enroute from Naha to Ishigaki.

Maritime Safety Agency officials say it is possible the man fell overboard the Arimura ferry Hiryu 21, as it sailed from Naha toward a stop in Miyako. After the 65-year-old man was discovered missing, the ship was searched and passengers interviewed to see if the man got off at the Miyako stop. He did not, and the search by three aircraft and four boats began under auspices of the Maritime Safety Agency.

Agency officials say the ferry arrived Saturday at Ishigaki without the man. The search continued into this week.
