Corentyne fishing crew missing at sea
Relatives of a Corentyne fishing crew are praying for their safe return after the vessel they were working on was found at the Whim foreshore around midday on Thursday minus the catch and seine.
The captain, known only as ‘Rajin’ of No 69 Village and his four-member crew left for sea two weeks ago in the blue vessel, named ‘Seeta’ that belonged to Beeram Persaud of No 60 Village.
Residents of Whim saw the boat and made a report to the fisheries officer in Berbice who in turn informed officials at the No 66 Fisheries. It is believed that the men were attacked by pirates.
