The Argentine Navy has stated that it is currently searching for a submarine that they have been unable to make contact with for 48 hours. The vessel was last located about two days ago approximately 250 miles off the coast of Patagonia.
There is no sign of disaster, only communication failure as of now, according to a spokesman for the Navy.
According to La Nacion, it is believed that the ARA San Juan, a German-built TR-1700 type submarine, suffered an electric malfunction. The submarine was carrying a 44 man crew.
“It’s not that it’s lost,” the navy spokesman said. “For it to be lost we’d have to look for it and not find it.”
