Passenger Missing after Indonesian Ferry Sinking

Wednesday, April 19, 2006
All but one person on an Indonesian ferry that sank in eastern Indonesian waters are safe, ABC Online reported. The ferry had 66 people onboard- 60 passengers and six crewmembers. The Indonesian navy had dispatched one ship and an airplane to search for the boat, which ran into problems near Roti Island, 1,900 kilometers east of the capital Jakarta. It is often difficult to determine how many passengers are aboard Indonesian ferries, since they frequently carry individuals who have not paid for tickets or are not listed on manifests.
