The 10 day massive operation by 25 Guardia Civil officers, a robot video submarine and volunteers from local dive centres in search of the 2 missing divers has now been scaled down.

The budy pair, an off-duty Guardia Civil sergeant and the son of a local dive centre owner, failed to surface with the rest of their group after a recreational dive at Pal Mar near Punta Rasca.

The search will continue from surface vessels.
