Kidnapped Americans’ ship found but search still on for sailors

Nigerian military officials were hunting on Friday for two Americans kidnapped at sea off Africa’s west coast, an area that has become a fertile ground for pirates in recent years.

“Yes, we are aware that they are missing, but we still do not have any information on the whereabouts of the men,” Nigerian navy spokesman Kabiru Aliyu said. “But we have deployed search-and-rescue teams who are currently combing the creeks. We are doing our best to find them.”

Aliyu told NBC News that the ship had been found, but did not give more details other than to say it was “somewhere off Bonny in the Eastern Naval Command Area of Responsibility.”
