Missed Amurskaya crew could reach desolate island, still alive and hoping for rescue

Relatives of the crew of general cargo vessel Amurskaya, which sank in Okhotsk sea, presumably with all hands, appealed to authorities and media to start search and rescue operation on a Maly Shantar (Little Shantar) Island in Shantar Archipelago, south east Okhotsk sea. They sent to Maritime Bulletin photos of life saving equipment, including life jackets, which was found on the coastline of the island. Island’s area is some 100 sq. kilometers, island is uninhabited and covered by forest. Their appeal already reached the authorities, with absolutely no reaction except promise to collect the equipment for further check. No mentioning of the possibility of resuming search and rescue. Theoretically, people could still be alive and wait for rescue.
