Peter Madsen faces manslaughter charges over the disappearance of the female journalist.

Peter Madsen was arrested Friday on preliminary manslaughter charges, hours after his 40-ton, almost 18-meter-long (60-foot-long) submarine sank off Denmark's eastern coast.

"My client denies the allegations", Betina Engmark, lawyer for 46-year-old inventor Peter Madsen told AFP, adding that he was "hurt" to be suspected of involvement in her death.

Copenhagen Police have appealed for witnesses who might have been at Refshaleøen at around 19:00 and 22:30 - the times Madsen claims his submarine left and returned.

Kim Wall's family said in statement emailed to The Associated Press on Saturday, "It is with great dismay that we received the news that Kim went missing during an assignment in Denmark".

Wall had been writing about Madsen and his submarine and was reported missing by her boyfriend, Danish tabloid Ekstra Bladet reported.

However, the club did win the Europa League and the League Cup, giving the manager a platform of success on which to build. THE Premier League title race is wide open, according to former Socceroo Robbie Slater.

Wall is a 30-year-old freelance journalist whose work appeared in major outlets all over the world, including the New York Times, Harper's Magazine, and Foreign Policy (she's also done reporting for Mashable that was never published for reasons unrelated to the quality of substance of her work).

Kristian Isbak tells The Associated Press he had responded to the Navy's call to help locate the submarine on Friday when he spotted Madsen.

Madsen, whose submarine sunk near Køge on Friday, denies the charges.

The Sweden-born freelance journalist studied at the Sorbonne university in Paris, the London School of Economics and at Columbia University in NY, where she graduated with a master's degree in journalism in 2013.

Local broadcaster TV2 aired footage of Madsen getting off the private boat and giving a thumbs-up sign, but the journalist was nowhere to be seen. "[He] came up again and stayed in the tower until water came into it".

Madsen's actions are being scrutinized because he is being detained in the disappearance of a Swedish journalist who had been onboard his submarine Thursday night.

"A radio contact was established for the boat, which, according to the owner, was heading towards the harbor", the police statement said. The 40-ton, 18-meter-long craft named UC3 Nautilus was his third submarine project.

Madsen told authorities he had dropped her off back at their departure point at about 10:30 p.m.

The reporter's partner raised the alarm in the early hours of Friday when she did not return from what was supposed to be a short journey on the vessel.

The Navy said the sub was seen sailing, but then sank shortly afterwards.

The hearing starts at 1200 GMT.
