All the information gathered by reaching out to Libyan JRCC, Rome MRCC, Alarm Phone and Sea-Watch 3, leads the Ocean Viking to conclude that there are no possibilities of finding the reported boat in distress.

Since the moment the boat was reportedly seen (Sunday 29th around noon), considering the weather conditions north of Al Khums (strong northerly winds), a rubber boat with no working engine (as reported to the Ocean Viking) would have drifted onto the Libyan shore after 9 to 12 hours.

While in position 33° 31.2′N 013° 17.4′E, Ocean Viking informs maritime authorities of her conclusions and that she resumes patrolling, heading West, while remaining available for any assistance that may be required.
