Earlier November we reports the news about “Two Germans Kidnapped After Yacht Was Hijacked in Indonesia”, told of how a German passenger on the ship was sending frantic SMS messages to friends ashore telling a forced boarding by violent pirates somewhere between Lombok and Bali. Indonesian police and German Embassy officials were contacted, triggering a search for the vessel and its imperiled crew of two.
The German yacht Faraway was hijacked in Strait of Lombok off Bali Island, Indonesia. The yacht with two people on board was on round the world trip, when was attacked by armed pirates in Java Sea.
The Search and Rescue Team of Denpasar, Bali, has been looking for 71-year-old German tourist, Bernhard Manfred Erich Lubke, who went missing while snorkeling at Nusa Dua Beach.
