Description

"The Hualien No. 1, a bulk carrier with a cargo of 5,300 tonnes of gravel, vanished off Taiwan's coast together with 12 crew members aboard after leaving Hualien Port for a 14-hour voyage to Tamsui on Feb. 28, 2000. No distress call was received. Neither flotsam nor fuel slick were found by related rescue teams. Experts also said it was unlikely that a substandard gravel ship such as the Hualien No. 1 would be of interest ot pirates."
