Second Taiwan warship to search for missing airplane

TAIPEI--The Republic of China Navy sent another frigate to help with the international search for a missing Malaysia Airlines jetliner on Thursday.

The Lafayette-class vessel, which embarked early Thursday, will work with the Chengkung-class Navy frigate and two Coast Guard Administration vessels that were dispatched three days ago, the military said.

The three ships that departed earlier were scheduled to arrive Friday in an area of the South China Sea where the Boeing 777-200 possibly went missing.

They are expected to operate there for four to five days.

According to Foreign Minister David Lin, Malaysia has agreed to allow the vessels to dock in one of its ports to take on fuel, water and food.
