Search Suspended For Fisherman Who Went Missing In The Saint Lucia Channel


Search and rescue teams have suspended the search for a Martinique fisherman reported missing in the Saint Lucia Channel on Sunday.

Martinique’s Prefect announced the suspension in a press release on Tuesday.

Helicopters and two private boats were among the air and sea resources involved in the operation to find Daniel Florian amid poor visibility, rough seas, and adverse weather.

The Antilles-Guyana Regional Operational Surveillance and Rescue Center (Marine Directorate) learned at 1:05 p.m. on Sunday that Florian had fallen into the water.

The circumstances surrounding the incident were not clear.

However, local reports said his empty boat was towed back to its home port in Sainte-Luce.
