        Peter Madsen, the captain of a self-designed submarine, is accused of having killed a woman. So far the Swede is considered missing. A corpse was not found.

The owner of a private Danish submarine must be under investigation after 24 days in Copenhagen. He is accused of negligent killing in connection with the disappearance of a Swedish journalist, reported Saturday the news agency Ritzau. Her relatives have reported the 30-year-old missing. Her whereabouts were still unclear on Saturday.

Peter Madsen is blaming himself
The submarine driver Peter Madsen had rejected the allegations before court. The Swede was last seen on Thursday evening when she embarked with Madsen in the port of Copenhagen on the UC3 Nautilus. Madsen said he had dismissed the woman on an island in the Copenhagen harbor area after a trip by submarine.

  The 18-meter-long boat designed by Madsen himself had then sunk, he himself was saved by a private ship and brought ashore. "I was on a test ride and tested a few things on the submarine, something went wrong with a ballast tank," Madsen was quoted.

The submarine was found at the late Friday morning in the bay of Køge south of the Danish capital. Divers discovered the wreck at a depth of seven meters. Since it was not stable, they could not get into it. The ship was launched in May 2008. On Saturday efforts began to lift the "Nautilus".

"We hope to lift them and bring them to the port," said police officer Carsten Reenberg. It was unclear how long the operation would last.
