A French woman and a British man have been found safe two and a half days after they went missing while diving off the coast of Malaysia, but the man’s teenage son is still missing, Malaysian police said on Saturday.

Alexia Alexandra Molina, an 18-year-old French woman, and Adrian Peter Chesters, a 46-year-old Briton, were spotted by fishermen in the waters off Pengerang at around 1 a.m. on Saturday (1700 GMT on Friday), Mersing district police chief Cyril Edward Nuing said.

“Both victims are now in hospital for further treatment and both are reported to be in stable condition,” he was quoted saying by ’s news agency BERNAMA.

“The fourth victim has still not been found and we are intensifying our search and rescue efforts,” he added.

Nuing said that the search for Chesters’ 14-year-old son, Nathan Renze Chesters, a Dutch citizen, will be expanded to Indonesian waters with the help of the Indonesian authorities.

“We believe there is a high likelihood that he is no longer in Malaysian waters based on the movement of sea currents, as well as the time and location where the other victims were found,” he said.

Singapore’s authorities have also been informed about the matter.

The trio went missing along with their instructor on Wednesday during a diving training activity near Tokong Sanggol, an island off the coast of Mersing in Johor state.
