Today (26th), the Haekyung continued to search in the surrounding seas.

And at the same time, I asked the military, who talked about the possibility of North Korea, for related data, but it seems that a decision will be made on Monday the day after tomorrow whether or not it will be received.

This is reporter Ahn Hee-jae.

<Reporter> A

sea ​​police officer on a patrol ship carries out a search operation with a telescope.

The Coast Guard is dividing the sea area south of the Northern Limit Line near the mountain cape where Mr. Lee was discovered on the north side into eight areas and is conducting an intensive search.

This is because there is a possibility that the dead Lee's body or clues may be floated along with the tide.

In fact, it has to be found with the naked eye, so the number of input equipment including 36 ships and 5 helicopters has been increased.

[Marine Police Officer: It is hard to get caught by radar.

You can’t see it well if you’re not big in the sea.

If it's not floating (in water), it's too difficult...


The investigation of Mr. Lee's disappearance is seldom speedy.

In addition to the broken CCTV and navigational record storage device, we are analyzing the PC onboard Mugunghwa 13, where Mr. Lee worked before boarding Mugunghwa 10, but it will take a considerable amount of time for the results to come out.

The Coast Guard also visited the Joint Chiefs of Staff and requested data on the North Korea situation that the military authorities had secured, but returned after hearing that it would inform them whether the data was provided the day after tomorrow, saying it was a sensitive matter.

The family of Mr. Lee went to the National Assembly to appeal to the body for retrieval and investigation.

[Lee Rae-jin/Deathed public official's brother: I eagerly cooperated with my brother's body because it is more important than any other important information.]

Mugunghwa 10, which was investigated on the coast of Yeonpyeong-do, departs Mokpo, Jeollanam-do one day later than scheduled. To arrive.
