SEOUL, April 1 (Yonhap) -- Two lifeboats believed to be from a missing South Korean cargo ship have been found with efforts now under way to safely rescue the ship's crew members, the Seoul government said Saturday.

The search for the missing ship, Stella Daisy, began earlier Saturday, one day after the ship's crew members sent a text to their South Korean employer, saying their ship was sinking.

The Marshal Islands-flagged ship was sailing near Uruguay when it made the distress call, according to the foreign ministry.

The 266,000-ton ore carrier left Brazil on Sunday. It was carrying eight South Korean and 16 Filipino sailors.
