M. Jelinek, de Ugarte Postigo, (IAA-CSIC), report:

  We have carried out R-band observations starting at 23:49 UT
  (~37 min after the GRB) with the 1.5m OSN telescope. A visual 
  comparison  reveals an object placed at:
   RA(J2000) = 00:48:56.1
   DEC(J2000)= 22:36:32
  not present on the DSS. A finding chart will be shortly available

  The object has a magnitude of R~18. Further observations would
  be required to confirm whether the object is fading."
