A cargo ship bound for China from Malaysia sank off Vietnam with all but one of its 19 all-Filipino crew still unaccounted for, the vessel’s owner confirmed yesterday. In a statement posted on its website, Gearbulk Holding Limited said Bulk Jupiter “capsized and sank” some 150 nautical miles off the Vietnamese coast while en route to an undisclosed destination in China from Kuantan, Malaysia. Gearbulk did not mention the actual date or the circumstances behind the sinking of Bulk Jupiter, which was carrying bauxite. The ship was believed to have sunk Friday. Gearbulk said the Bahamas-flagged ship departed Kuantan, Malaysia on Dec. 30 at around 8 p.m. local time.
