A passenger ship carrying 60 people disappeared in eastern Indonesia after reporting engine failure in stormy seas, a port official said Wednesday. A baby's body was found drifting in nearby waters along with several survivors. The KM Wahai Star was on a regular voyage from Buru island to Ambon, the capital of Maluku province, when it lost contact just before midnight Tuesday, said Karim Tuanaya, acting head of the local Port Authority.
