Dubai: Search-and-rescue efforts are underway in the North Arabian Sea after a sailor went missing from the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz on Sunday.
A Twitter statement by US 5th Fleet read “USS Nimitz called man overboard at 6:47 p.m. local time on Sept 6 after personnel aboard the ship were unable to locate the Sailor following a shipwide search.”


“The aircraft carrier USS Nimitz (CVN 68) and guided-missile cruiser USS Princeton (CG 59) are currently conducting search and rescue operations in the North Arabian Sea following reports of a missing U.S. Navy Sailor, Sept. 6,” according to a statement from the U.S. Navy’s 5th Fleet.
“The sailor was not located upon a search on board which resulted in a man overboard being called and the activation of the search and rescue,” Cmdr. Rebecca Rebarich, a 5th Fleet spokesperson said, as quoted by ABC News.
The Navy searched for the missing sailor throughout the night on Sunday, till Monday morning.
The sailor was categorised as Duty Status Whereabouts Unknown (DUSTWUN) and the name of the sailor is being withheld in accordance with U.S. Navy policy.
In April, during the time of COVID-19 pandemic, the Nimitz began its deployment to the Pacific and the Middle East.
To ensure that no active cases of coronavirus aboard the ship, almost 5,000 sailors were quarantined on the craft carrier in its homeport of Bremerton, Washington for several weeks before it deployed.
