Authorities in Indonesia were trying to locate a missing submarine on Wednesday.

The KRI Nanggala-402 submarine stopped responding on Wednesday morning, local media reported, citing defense officials.

Indonesian National Armed Forces Commander Marshal Hadi Tjahjanto told national paper Kompas that the submarine disappeared in waters about 60 miles (95 kilometers) north of the island of Bali at about 3 a.m. local time.

'Just when the dive permit was given, after being given the clearance, contact was immediately lost,' he told the paper.

It is one of five submarines owned by Indonesia and was built in Germany in 1979.

Indonesia has requested the help of Australia and Singapore in finding the submarine.
