Submarine mystery deepens, as police divers called in to probe wreck
Agatha Christie couldn’t have done it much better. A Swedish woman journalist, who had been on board the ‘Nautilis’ submarine, is missing.
Anna Göransson, a spokesperson from the police in Scania, told Aftonbladet that the woman had been on board and had been reported missing by her boyfriend.
That sinking feeling
Despite reports this morning that the submarine had sailed back into Køge Bay, the vessel sunk shortly afterwards on its way to the harbour, with its owner Peter Madsen abandoning ship shortly beforehand.
Jens Møller from Copenhagen Police told Politiken on Friday afternoon that divers were being sent down to search the wreck.
Madsen has told police that he disembarked the woman on Thursday evening at Refshaleøen.
‘Raketmadsen’ is best known for being a co-founder of Copenhagen Suborbitals, the amateur rocket group.
He is continuing to help the police with their enquiries and has taken part in a naval debriefing.
