MOSCOW, August 6. /TASS/. Underwater search of missing Russian freediving champion Natalia Molchanova has yielded no result, the operation continues on the surface, a senior official at the Russian Freediving Federation told TASS on Thursday.
Media reports said the 53-year-old champion freediver went missing on August 2. She did not surface after a recreational dive to 30-40 meters without fins. According to Molchanova’s three fellow divers, she went missing some three kilometers northwest of La Savina Port of Formentera Island.
"Underwater search has been ceased with no result," Galina Zveryaeva said. "The operation will continue on the surface for some days."
The search operation is headed by the Civil Spanish Guard. The Russian embassy in Barcelona told TASS that it keeps in touch with local authorities, police, sea rescue services and Russian Freediving Federation.
Molchanova, the world’s most decorated free diver, is the holder of 41 world records and a 23 times world champion.
Freediving is a form of underwater diving that relies on divers' ability to hold their breath until resurfacing.
