Argentina’s navy says the improvement of weather conditions will boost search efforts for the lost submarine last Wednesday in the Atlantic Ocean.

The ARA San Juan, boarding 44 crew members, was returning from a routine mission. “The sups captain reported an electrical problem before it disappeared”, Argentinian spokesman Gabriel Galeazzi said.

Hopes to find the vessel were high after officials said that noises, believed to be distress signals, were heard by two search vessels, but was discovered that they did not come from the sub, dashing relatives’ optimism for a quick rescue of their loved ones.

As the clock is ticking, Brazil, Colombia, France, Germany, the United Kingdom and the United States, among other nations, have all sent either ships or planes to help with the search.
