The Argentine Navy began a search on Friday, November 17, for the submarine San Juan after contact with it was lost two days previously. Forty-four sailors were aboard as the sub traveled between naval bases in Ushuaia and Mar del Plata.

The navy said the San Juan’s last known position was in the San Jorge Gulf.
