BUENOS AIRES, Argentina (AP):

Argentina's Navy yesterday announced that it was ramping up the search for a submarine that hasn't been heard from in three days.

Navy spokesman Enrique Balbi said the search area off the country's southern coast has been expanded. Six countries have joined in the hunt for the ARA San Juan. They include the United States and Great Britain.

Authorities last had contact with the German-built diesel sub last Wednesday as it was on a voyage from the extreme southern port of Ushuaia to Mar del Plata with 44 crew members aboard.
