Buenos Aires - An Argentine-flagged fishing trawler went missing on Saturday with a crew of nine aboard after sending a distress signal, authorities said.

Searchers located a body in the area the boat went missing but it was not immediately clear if it was one of the missing crew.

The 28-meter trawler Rigel sounded its distress signal off Chubut province's coast, 200 kilometers east of the city of Trelew.

Two navy ships and a plane were combing the area where a life jacket from the boat was found; other ships in the area also were asked to try to help find the missing crew.
