A Castries man has been reported missing at sea after a boating mishap Tuesday night, police say.

Law enforcement officials say they received information that two men in a canoe were en route to Vieux Fort from Dennery about 7.00 pm, when a huge wave hit the vessel causing it to capsize.

The two men are said to have been able to cling to the overturned vessel, when a second wave hit.

It was reported that at that point, the men began swimming towards the shore but became separated.

A Marine Police vessel was dispatched to the area South of Dennery to conduct a search.
