UPDATED (2): Divers suspend search for Zammit after shark is spotted

The search continued at 6.30am this morning for Neil Zammit, aged 20, from Paola who disappeared while he was diving with another man at Baħar iċ-Ċagħaq.

Zammit’s fellow diver, who is 38, was rescued from the sea, but the young man has still not been found.

They were diving in the area in front of White Rocks.

The Armed Forces of Malta began their search yesterday using a helicopter and a number of patrol boats, and the search continues today. Zammit’s diving partner is helping out in the search.

However, the search by AFM divers had to be suspended when at around 11m a helicopter spotted a shark in the waters. The patrol boat and helicopter are continuing with the search.
