Dryad Analysis

This latest sighting is 60nm NW from a Kidnapping incident that occurred on the 03 Feb 19 and 53nm east from another kidnapping incident on the 15 Jul 19. The sighting also sits 100nm west of the main concentration of MARSEC incidents within the Nigerian EEZ within 2019. As yet the vessel is unconfirmed as a mother-ship vessel, however the towing of a speedboat is a significant sign of potential involvement in hostile behavior and as such all vessels in this location should proceed with extreme caution.
