Migrant goes missing off Rhodes

A Hellenic Navy vessel and a Super Puma helicopter were involved in the search for a missing migrant off the southeastern Aegean island of Rhodes over the weekend.

The man was reportedly on board a 30-meter boat along with another 63 undocumented migrants when they were spotted by a cargo ship. The man subsequently fell into the sea and went missing.

In a separate incident, 34 undocumented migrants on board a stranded dinghy were collected by coast guard officers off the northern Aegean island of Samothraki on Saturday.
