Subsequently deregistered by Belize. Unconfirmed information indicates the vessel called into Conakry, Guinea in November 2015, and then departed heading south. An AIS signal indicated that the vessel entered Freetown, Sierra Leone 24 March 2016 however a patrol by the local authority could not identify a fishing vessel in the location of the AIS signal. There is a possibility that the AIS transponder from RAY has now been passed on to another vessel but the information has not been updated. Two vessels are now broadcasting on AIS with the same MMSI 312451000 – RAY (or another vessel carrying RAY’s transponder) and the cargo vessel LISA, IMO 9128013, operating in the Black Sea. Identified anchored off Lome, Togo on 31 July 2016. Documents submitted to Togolese authorities showed that the name is YELE, flagged to Sierra Leone. Inspection was carried out by Togo on 3 August 2016, following which the vessel was denied further port access and requested to leave Togolese waters. Possible presence in Abidjan, Cote d'Ivoire in October 2016. Vessel called in to Port Harcourt in Nigeria, using the name HAI LUNG, and subsequently Lagos, where it was apprehended in September 2017. It was reported by vessel representatives that it was underway to India for scrapping and was calling in to Nigeria for bunkers and spare parts. In contradiction with the latter, the vessel sailed to Liberia in March 2018.
