After multiple failed attempts to contact the vessel via satellite phone, JRCC Honolulu watchstanders issued a SafetyNet broadcast, contacted commercial vessels in the area, and launched an Air Station Barbers Point HC-130 Hercules aircrew to conduct a search for the Yong-Yu-Sing No. 18: Upon arriving in the area the Hercules aircrew located the vessel and attempted to contact the crew over the radio with no response: Poor weather conditions prevented the aircrew from observing any crew members aboard and due to low fuel the Hercules aircrew returned to base after taking imagery of the vessel:

Upon analysis of the imagery it was discovered there was damage to the ship and one of the vessel’s life rafts was missing: JRCC Honolulu Watchstanders deployed assets to search the area and reached out to partners for assistance:

Currently searching are-

-Two Coast Guard Air Station Barbers Point C-130 Hercules aircrews
-A Coast Guard Air Station Kodiak C-130J Hercules aircrew
-Four Taiwanese fishing vessels
-Navy Boeing P-8 Poseidon aircrew
