VLADIVOSTOK, November 4 (Itar-Tass) —— The debris was found in the search area of the bulk carrier Amurskaya in the Sea of Okhotsk along with the oil stain. “The echo depth sounder spotted some change in the depth in the search area, the divers are about to submerge,” the press service of the Russian Transport Ministry quoted the captain of the rescue ship Rubin on Sunday.

The current speed is up to four knots, and high waves are reported in the search area of the bulk carrier. The Rubin ship anchored, a boat was set afloat from the ship, the rescuers are seeking to catch the underwater object with an anchor to spot this place with a buoy.
The coastline has also been searched through westward and eastward on Sunday. A total of 40 kilometres have been searched through, but in vain. The weather in the search area is the following: the winds are 4-6 metres per second, the waves are up to one metre high, the visibility is five nautical miles, the air temperature is one degree Celsius and the water temperature is four degrees Celsius.

The crew of the bulker consists of nine sailors from the Primorye and Khabarovsk Territories, their fate remains unclear.
