Submarine in missing journalist case sunk on purpose, Danish police say

Mr Madsen initially said that he dropped Ms Wall off before it sank but police say he has now changed his statement - although they have not said what to.

Danish police believe that a submarine at the centre of an investigation into a missing Swedish journalist was deliberately sunk.

Copenhagen police are searching on land and at sea for 30-year-old freelance journalist Kim Wall.

Early Friday, Danish authorities announced they were looking for the Nautilus in waters off Copenhagen.

The boat left on Thursday evening at around 19 from RefshaleĂžen, where some of Kim Wall's friends were present to wave goodbye.

'There are no persons in the submarine, dead or alive, ' Jens Moller, head of Copenhagen Police's homicide unit, said at a news conference on Sunday. By Friday afternoon, Madsen had been taken into custody pending manslaughter charges.

Wall, a freelance journalist who has written from China and the USA for the Guardian and the New York Times, and who was writing a feature about the Nautilus and its owner, boarded the submarine on Thursday evening and has not been heard from since. The ballast tank is a compartment that holds water to provide stability.

An inventor has been charged with manslaughter after a journalist went missing after taking a ride in his submarine.

On Sunday police said they had since been given another explanation by Madsen, but have not stated what this was. "But I guess that was pretty good because I otherwise still would have been down there".

The police in Sweden said they had tried without success to contact her by phone and that her family had not heard from her.

Madsen, an entrepreneur, artist, inventor and aerospace engineer, was rescued by a private boat from the submarine minutes before it sank. It can carry eight people.
