The bodies of remaining two sailors, who were reported missing since the Cyclone Nilam crossed the coast on October 31, were washed ashore this morning.

Of the five missing crew members of the Mumbai-based Oil Tanker vessel 'MT Prathiba Cauvery', three were recovered yesterday.

The fourth body was found near Ennore coast late last evening and the fifth body was washed ashore near Minjur, a good 20 km distance, from where the five went missing before the cyclone crossed the coast near Mamallapuram on October 31.

Both the bodies, which were badly bloated, were taken to Government General Hospital for identification.

With this, the bodies of all five sailors who went missing, have been recovered.
