    The divers were exploring waters in the Komodo National Park, between the islands of Flores and Sumbawa, when they failed to return from a trip, according to an employee of Reefseekers diving center, which organized the expedition.
    Reefseekers named dive master Kathleen Mitchinson, who was leading the group, among the missing. British, French and Swedish citizens were among those missing, the Komodo Divers Association added.
