Sailor missing from warship in South China Sea
    2017-August-3  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A SAILOR on board a U.S. Navy destroyer in the South China Sea has disappeared, officials told Fox News on Tuesday.

The guided-missile destroyer reported a man overboard at around 9 a.m. local time, according to Military.com. U.S. and Japanese ships are currently assisting in the search-and-rescue effort.

The sailor was reported missing from the USS Stethem approximately 220 kilometers west of Subic Bay in the Philippines. An official said the missing officer had checked in aboard the ship a short time before the disappearance.

The search for a missing sailor is the third for the Navy since June. A sailor fell from the USS Normandy on June 6 and was later presumed dead after an extensive search. Another from the USS Shiloh, thought to have fallen overboard and presumed dead just days after the previous incident, was later found to be hiding in the ship’s engine room.

The sailor, Petty Officer 3rd Class Peter Mims, was later charged with dereliction of duty.

The Navy did not release the name of the Stetham sailor since recovery efforts are still underway.

The Stetham is homeported in Yokosuka, Japan.
