  • Missing Presumed Lost


    The stakes are high. Is it Jack, Sandro or the briefcase that becomes... Missing Presumed Lost?

    Two heavy, sealed, plastic tubs are salvaged from a light aircraft in a remote part of the Celebes Sea, off the coast in Indonesia. Within hours of informing the authorities, strangers are asking about the whereabouts of the salvers and their boat.
