Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) in Pangasinan stated that seven fishermen were fishing at 15 nautical miles northwest of Bolinao, Pangasinan and were reported missing.

NFNL immediately mobilized its troops from BRP Manuel Gomez (PC 388) to conduct search and rescue operations.

Navy Capt. Francisco Tagamolila, commander of the NFNL, praised his troops for their quick response to the incident.

“The quick response of our navy team has helped save the lives of the fishermen. Rest assured that your Navy in the North will remain committed to ensuring the maritime safety of our people on our northern coasts,” he said.

Northern Luzon Command Chief and the concurrent Commander of Area Task Force – North (ATF – North), Lieutenant General Arnulfo Marcelo B Burgos Jr., expressed that “the close coordination among concerned member agencies of ATF – North, the PCG, and the NFNL, and their prompt response to the distress call is a testament of our steadfast commitment of ensuring the safety and security of our fisherfolks while performing their livelihood in our territorial waters.”

When the seven fishermen arrived in Bolinao, Pangasinan, the crew of PC 388 quickly handed them over to PCG Pangasinan for due disposition.
