USO OUTSIDE NORRTÄLJE  

       "An unidentified submarine has been reported Saturday night (September 13, 1969) inside the prohibited military sector at Björkö-Arholma, north of Stockholm.
       "Navy Helicopters and a Coast Guard cruiser were sent immediately to the area to search for the intruder. It was first sighted by a Finnish ferry outside Norrtälje. A man stationed on the island of Hämtan said he saw the submarine from his motorboat near Havssvalget. He picked the object up with his searchlight and watched it from a distance of only a few yards. He was unable to identify it. After he radioed his report to the coast guard an extensive search was held Saturday evening by aircraft, ships and military troops. No trace of the object was ever found."
