The Search and Rescue (SAR) team has stopped searching for the presumed-sunk KM Citra Indah, which has been missing for seven days with eight of its crew members in the Malacca Strait, off northern Aceh.

'€œIn accordance with our procedures, the search for the ship was stopped as it has entered its seventh day,'€ SAR Aceh operation section head Ibnu Haris was quoted by Antara news agency as saying on Saturday.

Ibnu said the wooden ship, which was transporting sugar and glutinous rice from Malaysia to Sabang free port, on We island, Aceh, sunk on June 16 after being hit by a storm.

He said the ship captain and two crew members had been saved by a Singaporean ship and reported the accident on June 19.
