The search continues in the Indian Ocean off the west coast of Australia. The HMS Echo is now moving back to the north east and is in a position around 80 miles south west of the ADV Ocean Shield. HMAS Toowoomba is also now working in the area, whilst to the western edge of the scene, the HMAS Perth and HMAS Success are in close proximity. The Hai Xun 01 has moved from her position in the southern region, and has now moved up the north western edge of the zone, north of the Australian replenishment ship.
From the north, the American Lewis and Clarke class replenishment ship Cesar Chavez, and the Chinese search and rescue ships Hai Xun 31 and Nan Hai Jiu 101 are positioned south of Christmas Island, and appear to be ready to support the search efforts. (sourse: IHS Maritime 360)
