Missing Australian tourists found off Bali

Four Australian tourists reported missing on a chartered boat off the coast of Bali on Sunday night have been found alive.

A Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade spokesperson told The Australian that all four Australians were safe.

The tourists and three crew members were on board the wooden boat heading out to an island off the coast of Bali to embark on a three-day diving holiday when the engine failed on Sunday afternoon, the ABC reported.
Search and rescue teams were deployed but their efforts were interrupted by bad weather.

The crew have now made contact with the boat's owner, Ayi Fajri Iskandar, who said the Australians were shaken but safe and heading back to Bali, the ABC said.
