From the Serannian Gazette:

 

 

A military spokesperson announced today that three naval officers that had been missing at sea and presumed dead for more than four years made their way home yesterday afternoon. The three officers had been aboard a naval cruiser when it went missing for reasons unknown. The entire crew was presumed to have gone down with the vessel.

 

The identity of the officers has not been released, and there is no word on their story. Perhaps their recovery will shed light on the four-year-old mystery of what exactly happened to them and their ship on the day it went down.

 

The Gnorri was making its way back to Serannian after a routine exercise in the waters west of Serannian. At approximately 6:50 pm, the captain of the ship reported via radio communication of a dense fog suddenly rolling in around the vessel. After this, there was no further communication with the cruiser.

 

It has been speculated that the cruiser lost its way in the fog and impacted upon rocks jutting from the shallow waters off the coast. This theory, however, has caused much debate, as no trace of the wreckage has been found.
