The Office of the National Committee for Search and Rescue has asked the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) to report this to Indonesia so that the country can direct relevant authorities to search for the missing.
It has also urged the Vietnam Maritime Rescue Coordination Centre (MRCC) to work with the Indonesian MRCC to conduct a joint search with assistance from the border guards of Ba Ria-Vung Tau province.
Right after the MoFA sent a diplomatic note to the Indonesian Embassy in Hanoi, the Indonesia MRCC ordered a plane to patrol but it could not take off due to the bad weather.
