Brazilian airplanes had spotted debris in Brazilian shores that could have belonged to the "Tunante II", the Argentine sailboat that went missing on Tuesday while carrying four Argentine crew members, but finally confirmed they are part of another ship.

The finding could have been vital to the search, as it would have set a baseline for further exploration.

Brazilian and Argentinean navy spokesmen confirmed the search carries on by air and sea.

The ship went missing around 180 miles away from the shore of Porto Alegre city with renowned eye specialist Jorge Benozzi on board.

Giovanna, Benozzi’s daughter, told reporters the crew made an emergency call to inform a storm turned the ship upside down but said they were ok. At that point the family notified the Brazilian Navy, and the search began.
