Z„ Wednesday. Jan. 12 — <U.R> — Three vessel* searched today in the vicinity of Samoa where the Pan-American Samoan Clipper is missing, but found no trace of the ill-fated plane. The vessels are the S. S. .Mariposa, the motorship Matua. and the New Zealand naval sloop Wellington. SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 11—(CJJ)-Pan-American Airways reported at 9:45 tonight that the Samoan Clipper reported missing on a flight from Pago Pago to Auckland, New Zealand, had been sighted in the Pacific 74 miles due west of Apia, British Samoa. The message, received here from the Pan-American radio base at Pago Pago, said that the plane had been sighted at 8:55 a.m. Samoa time (11:55 a.m. PST.) REPORTED LEAK This was 28 minutes after the last signal from the Clipper, which almost an hour before its final signal had reported it was returning to Pago Pago because of a leak in an oil line. Pan-American headquarters later said it has been unable to verify the report transmitted by its Pago Pago station or to obtain further details. Striving to check the message, Pan-American learned that it had originated from a private operator's dispatch from Apia which said the operator had aeen a plane unloading gas in the air and settling near Apia harbor. MAY HAVE LANDED Pan-American officials believed it possible that Musick had chosen to land to the leeward of some island, possibly uncharted, that lay along his 1806-mile route from Samoa to New Zealand. Seeking to explain the silence of the Clipper’s powerful radio, they believed that mountains, some of which rise 1500 feet above sea level. right up against the wing.
