SEOUL, April 15 (Yonhap) — One Navy petty officer dispatched to a South Korean contingency in Somalia went missing during an escort mission in the Gulf of Aden on Tuesday, prompting a search operation, the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) said.

The 22-year-old officer, identified only by his surname Ha, disappeared early Tuesday while a South Korean destroyer was escorting three ships to Port of Mukalla, Yemen, the JCS said.

Helicopters and ships have been dispatched to nearby waters, while sailors are searching compartments of the 4,500-ton ship to find him, it said.
