Twenty-five bodies have been found while one person remains missing from the engineering ship Fujing 001, which sank off the coast of Yangjiang, Guangdong province, ahead of Typhoon Chaba's arrival on July 2.

Four crew members who had been rescued are in stable condition and rescue workers are looking for the missing person, according to a statement issued by the Guangdong provincial maritime search and rescue center on Friday.

Various departments from Guangdong and Hainan provinces and the Hong Kong special administrative region have jointly search operations across 10,000 square nautical miles.

Maritime safety authorities have set up a team for investigating the cause of the accident.
