(2/16/2014) International press reports that rescuers have recovered 1 body among 7 Japanese women divers  missing after a diving excursion to Crystal Bay, located a short distance off the southern shore of Bali were apparently in error with search and rescue authorities reporting they continue to search for 7 missing divers.

Missing are Ritsuko Miyata (59), Emi Yamamoto (33), Nahomi Tomita (28), Aya Morizono (27), Atsumi Yoshinobe (29), Shoko Takahashi (29), and Saori Furukawa (27).

While details remain sketchy, the croups went missing on Friday, February 134, 2014 at around 1:00 pm. Conditions were said to be rainy and windy at the time.

Searchers from the National Search and Rescue Agency (SAR), Water Police and the boatmen from the vessel that carried the divers are continuing the search aided by a helicopter and fast boats.

The seven divers were brought to Blue Corner, a popular dive spot at Nusa Lembongan by Ocean Express. The divers failed to reemerge on the surface at the end of the dive.

The alarm for the missing divers was only raised at 7:00 pm on Friday, after darkness had already descended on the area.
