It was difficult to establish direct contact to the people in distress. At 16.65h CET we reveived a GPS position via Whatsapp, which we forwarded to authorities via phone and e-mail. Throughout the early evening we attempted to contact various police authorities, none of wich were reachable or took or calls. At 00.27h CET November 14th an operator of the port police on Samos answered our call but stated they had no information about this case. At 10.00h CET the relative who had initially alerted us to the case forwarded names and further phone numbers of the stranded people, which we forwarded to authorities via e-mail. At 14.54h we received a call by one of the stranded people. The person stated that their group had been found by the Greek police at 19.00h CET November 12th , their valuables and belongings taken by the officers and placed into a small boat returning them to Turkey. The person confirmed all 35 people had arrived in Turkey.
