Search Mission Planned After Island Disappears

The Japanese Coast Guard is planning a search mission after a small island disappeared.

Speaking to local fisherman, Japanese officials discovered that an islet disappeared, prompting a possible loss of territorial waters for Japan. As such, they are planning to launch a mission to find what happened to the island named Esanbehanakitakojima.

Officials say the likeliest scenario is that the island disappeared under the erosion of snow and wind.
