Search for missing Red Sea divers called off

Over the first weekend of the New Year, 4 divers went missing during a reef dive at Marsa Alam in Egypt.

On Tuesday the Egyptian authorities called off the search for the 2 Russians, a Dutchman and the Egyptian Guide after a helicopter and 15 boats have been searching the area for four days.

According to Alaa El Din Abdelgeleel of the Red Sea Association for Diving and Marine Sport, "I am sorry to say there is no chance to find them alive. We are limiting the search to the coastal areas, looking for their bodies."
