Submarine which disappeared with 44 crew is found one year later

Relatives of the missing crew gathered at the Mar de Plata Naval Base after the submarine went missing

Argentine Navy officials announced early Saturday that searchers have found the missing submarine ARA San Juan deep in the Atlantic a year after it disappeared with 44 crewmen aboard.

A noise detected a few hours after the submarine disappeared is believed to have been the sound of the vessel imploding, the Argentine navy claimed.

The discovery came the day after a somber ceremony, which Macri attended, at the San Juan's Mar del Plata base on the first anniversary of its disappearance.

It was located at a depth of around 907m (2,975ft) in the waters off the Valdes Peninsula and was surrounded by a field of rubble, with underwater turbulence making visibility hard.

Aguad could neither confirm nor deny if the vessel could be recovered, but said the government did "not have the means to extract the submarine". "From the analysis of the state in which the submarine has been found, we will see how to proceed", he said.

The ARA San Juan submarine disappeared 430km (270 miles) off the Argentine coast on 15 November 2017.

The Argentine navy said in the following days that the vessel's captain had reported a short circuit in the vessel's battery system shortly before the last known contact.

The navy said previously that the captain reported water had entered the snorkel and caused one of the sub's batteries to short-circuit. It had set out in September on the latest attempt to find the San Juan, whose disappearance cost the navy's top officer his job.

Relatives of crew members prayed for their return in Mar del Plata even as hopes dwindled that the diesel-powered submarine would be found before the air supply ran out. Argentina has ended a rescue operation for 44 crew members aboard submarine that went missing on Nov. 15, but it will continue the search for the sub, the Navy informed Thursday Nov. 30.

Macri promised a full investigation after the submarine was lost.

Ocean Infinity, a USA company that can search and map the seabed, was hired by Argentina following the failure of an worldwide operation to find the vessel after it went missing in the South Atlantic.

The U.S. company in charge of the search operation, Ocean Infinity, discovered the ARA San Juan submarine Friday in the south Atlantic Ocean at a depth of approximately half a mile, about 700 miles east of the Argentine city of Puerto Madryn.

The Seabed Constructor - a vessel owned by USA search firm Ocean Infinity, which set out in September on the latest attempt to find the San Juan - found the missing sub.
