Tista' taqra bil- Malti.

The Armed Forces of Malta (AFM) found the corpse of the young man lost at Miġra l-Ferħa in Mtaħleb on Sunday.

Police sources, informed Newsbook.com.mt that the missing person, who was identified to be an American residing in The Netherlands, decided to jump into the sea with another man notwithstanding the strong sea currents on Saturday. When the two decided to swim back to shore, they seemed to have found it impossible to climb back on shore as the sea kept pushing them back in.

The second man, a 38-year-old Portuguese only managed to save himself after he let himself go adrift to finally reach Ġnejna Bay.

The AFM search area had been extending their search area  as time went by.
