JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) -- Four European divers are reported missing off an island in Indonesia's East Kalimantan province.

Local Search and Rescue Agency chief Mujiono said the three Italians and a Belgian were reported missing while diving Saturday off Sangalaki, a small resort island.

He said a local guide was initially missing along with the Europeans but was found alive and is being treated at a hospital.

Mujiono, who uses only one name, said police, navy personnel and local residents are searching for the divers.

They are identified as Italians Alberto Mastrogiuseppe, Daniele Buresta and Michela Caresani, and Belgian Vana Chris.
