A Taiwanese ship carrying 49 crew, including Filipinos and Indonesians, has vanished in the remote South Atlantic Ocean without any sign of a mayday call but shortly after its skipper reported it was taking on water.The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) said that it has been helping with efforts to search for the ship.
