Police: All five missing divers found alive

June 7, 2008


— Rescuers have found all five European divers who went missing while scuba diving in treacherous waters off eastern Indonesia, police said today.

The divers - three from Britain and one each from France and Sweden - were found Saturday morning on the southern coast of an island in the area they went missing in Thursday, chief of local police Lt. Col. Buce Helo said.

"They were found on Rinca island and are now being transported to Labuhan Bajo on board a motorboat," Helo said.

The five had been last seen plunging from their wooden boat Thursday to dive off Tatawa island, near Komodo National Park.
