A Japanese fishing boat with a crew of 22 collided with a Panama-flag cargo ship in the Pacific Ocean early Monday and 13 crew are missing.

The 119-ton Horiei Maru with seventeen Japanese and five Indonesians on board collided with the Panama-registered 25,047-ton Nikkei Tiger in waters about 900 kilometers east of Miyagi and may have sunk, the 2nd Regional Coast Guard Headquarters said.

Nine of the 22 on the Horiei Maru -- five Japanese and four Indonesians -- were rescued by another fishing boat  the coast guard said, adding that they are searching for those missing.

The crew members of the cargo vessel are all safe.
