After knowing the facts, Force commander Rear Admiral Ricardo A. Hernández López, embarked on the frigate Navarra, ordered the departure of ​​the ship, which was in the port of Mombasa, to proceed to search and intercept the pirates.

During this search the P3-C located a Yemeni jabeque (dhow) fishing boat towing several skiffs.

With this information, the Navarra frigate, after 28 hours of navigation, managed to locate the fishing boat at dawn on Tuesday and found that it was heading towards an area close to known pirate camps on the Somali coast.
