The capsized sand-dredging ship in the waters of the Malacca Strait, Malaysia on Wednesday was confirmed to be registered in Dominica, named JBB Rong Chang 8.

There are seven Malaysian rescue ships on the scene, with a number of divers involved in the rescue.

Malaysian local governments launched search and rescue efforts after the ship capsized, with three Chinese crew members rescued, one dead and 12 others missing, according to the website of the Chinese Embassy in Malaysia.

A Malaysian and an Indonesian crew member were also missing, according to the Malaysian Maritime Enforcement Agency, the country's coast guard.
