Thirty-nine days have passed since the Sewol-ho ferry sank in waters off Korea's southwestern coast and on this Saturday no progress in the search for the more than one dozen people still missing.
Divers have been focusing their search on the third and fourth floor of the sunken ship, but the weather conditions have worsened over the last few hours, making search operations that much more difficult.
Meanwhile, prosecutors and police are still searching for the fugitive Yoo Byung-eun and his eldest son Yoo Dae-gyun.
Police are offering the highest reward possible under Korean law of nearly 50-thousand U.S. dollars to anyone who can provide information leading to Yoo Byung-eon's arrest.
Police suspect Yoo may be hiding in a home of a devotee.
Officers say those found harboring the suspect will be severely punished.
Two of Yoo's close aides and his other two children, known to be living abroad, have been put on Interpol's wanted list.
