MARIVELES, Bataan — The body of missing crew member of a tugboat that sunk off Mariveles town at the height of Typhoon “Jolina” (international name Conson) was already found, authorities said on Friday.

P/Maj. Leoncio Alcantara, Bataan PNP Maritime chief, said residents in Barangay Ipag, also in Mariveles, discovered the body of Peter Bilucura, 40, a native of Cebu City.


Bilucura was positively identified by a relative, said Alcantara.

According to the investigators, the tugboat that carried Bilucura and other crew members was being pulled by a barge when the rope snapped, causing the small seacraft to sink.
