According to publicly logged ADS-B flight data, a HKSAR Government Flying Service helicopter either landed in the middle of the sea or HKSAR govt personnel flew out to the Chinese Coast Guard cutter and landed on it after their Bombardier spotter plane landed after their capture.
They could have just turned the tracker off, not nope. It's all there.

A GFS Bombardier took off at 4:30am, flew straight to Nine Pins Island group, orbited for hours, then circled something that matches all accounts of #save12hkyouth escape attempt.

As soon as it landed, a GFS Airbus H175 flew to where Bombardier departed.

#Day30 12 HK activists and protestors were arrested by the mainland China Coast Guard for illegal border crossing. The youngest person is a 16 years old student. They are now being detained in mainland China since 30 days ago. Image
They are patriotic HKers who could be enjoying life but chose to fight for freedom. Please help us get them back to HK by sharing the news and raise the international awareness

[Arrests at #hkprotests hit 10,000 milestone]

1. Since #HongKongProtests last year, 10,000+ HKers were arrested with nearly 400 arrests solely in the past two months. It implies in every 700 #Hongkongers, one has been detained due to protests or #hkpolice’s arbitrary arrests. Image
2. While most are charged w/ rioting & illegal assemblies, the figure clearly indicates freedom of assembly is under assault amid #Beijing’s mounting influence. With the prosecution rate much lower than arrests, it suggests arbitrary arrest is a tactic to scare off protesters.
3. In fact, #policebrutality intensifies, especially with pregnant woman and 12yo girl forcibly tackled to ground, and a #HKer dragged along the ground just because he urged resuming election & demand releasing 12 HK #Asylumseekers now detained in #China’s prison. #save12hkyouth

[HK #Asylumseekers with access to lawyers blocked]

1. Two weeks after pre-trial detention, Chinese cops blocked lawyers from getting access to the 12 HK #Asylumseekersdetained in #China, per @icablenews. Lawyers described the practice is unusual and without legal ground.
2. #Police also told lawyers that detainees may face graver charge, with maximum penalty raised from one year to 2-7 years, or even life imprisonment if they resisted with force during the arrest. Besides, #Beijing might also charge other national security offences.
3. Since it could be the first case that #HKers are put on trial in China’s secret court under #nationalsecuritylaw, we hope the world can keep watch on the situation and wish they can all come back safe. #save12hkyouths #save12hkyouth #save12

[Trapped in the black hole -
After two-week detention in #China, still no update abt 12 HK #AsylumSeekers]

1. Only thing we know is they are all taken to detention centre in #Shenzhen & Chinese cops will decide whether to arrest them formally by Oct 1, according to #China’s law
2. But even after the arrest, there's still a huge question mark on when they will be prosecuted, put on trial and how long trial will last. Prosecution can be further delayed if Chinese prosecutors claim they need “supplementary investigation”. It will be like an endless tunnel.
3. Under #China's law, suspects can be released on bail. But in reality, especially when all the #asylumseekers may face further charges under #China's #nationalsecuritylaw and other criminal laws, the chance of bail is slim.
