  • Search for U.S. Marine missing in Sulu Sea underway

A US Marine was reported missing in the Sulu Sea, triggering an "all-hands" rescue operation in an area where local terrorist group Abu Sayyaf Group operates.

The United States Navy reported that they are now conducting an "all-hands effort" search for a United States Marine that fell overboard while the ship he was on was conduction operations off the coast of the Philippines in the Sulu Sea.

"To date, multiple searches have been conducted inside the ship while embarked aircraft aboard the USS Essex conduct round-the-clock search and rescue operations within the Sulu Sea and Surigao Strait", the unit said in its press release.

The Philippine government facilitated diplomatic clearance for U.S. assets involved in the search and rescue operation.

In a statement, the US Embassy said the Marine was assigned to the 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit (MEU) aboard USS Essex.

"A United States marine fell from a U.S. ship while traversing Philippine waters". Navy, Marine Corps and Philippine ships and aircraft are all involved in the search, which will continue "until every option has been exhausted", according to a post on the 13th MEU's Facebook page.
