Truth or concoction? The family of Nining Sunarsih an Indonesian woman purportedly swept out to sea a year and half ago being found alive at the same spot she went missing. 

A woman who was swept out to sea and believed to have drowned off the coast of Indonesia has re surfaced 18 months later, alive.

Local media reported Nining Sunarsih, 53, being found at the very same beach she’d been swept from a year and half ago. Authorities said the woman was unconscious but alive.

The finding has shocked the woman’s family who were led to believe Nining perishing after being washed away by a large wave in West Java in January last year.

At the time of her disappearance, TribuJatim.com, reported Nining being on holiday with her family at Citepus Beach in Sukabumi.

It was while bathing by the shore that family members saw a large wave came, taking the woman out to sea as they helplessly watched on.

Since being returned to her family, the missing woman’s family members said they never gave up hope of finding Nining alive while acknowledging miracles do happen.

Then, last month, Sunarsih’s father began having dreams that she was back on the same beach and waiting to be picked up.

At first he ignored them, but after having the same dream several times he traveled to the beach on Saturday.

The family began searching in the early evening and at first were unsuccessful but discovered Sunarsih around midnight.

She was discovered by her sister – who was one of the people who had watched her disappear.

According to reports Sunarsih was unconscious, fully clothed, and around 500m (1,600ft) from where she initially vanished. Of note the woman had no physical marks or signs of dehydration, wear or tear consistent of having been out to sea, let alone for a year and a half. 

Her family took her home and called medics, who confirmed that she had no major injuries.

She has since regained consciousness and has been able to eat and drink, but is so far unable unwilling to talk – meaning nobody has been able to question her about what happened and where she has been.

Police have opened an investigation into the incident, while urging people to ‘think logically’ about the disappearance and not jump to conclusions.

Told Sukabumi City Police Chief Susatyo Purnomo, ‘It is our duty to look for the facts of this event.

‘We ask people not to be influenced by information that is not yet clear.’
