A veteran Bruceville, Vieux Fort fisherman has been reported missing at sea after failing to return home from a fishing expedition on Friday, August 5, 2022.

A relative identified the missing fisher as 64-year-old Marcellus George, alias ‘Coshee’.

The relative said he left home around 7:30 am to go to the Fisheries Complex in Vieux Fort, where colleagues reported that he ventured out to sea alone in a boat.

George, who has been a fisher for over two decades, did not return and did not respond to mobile telephone calls.

A family member said it’s not the first time that he has been reported missing.

It was disclosed that in 2000 George and two others were reported missing at sea after their boat encountered engine trouble.

After drifting for two days, they were eventually rescued.

George’s family said they have made a report to the Marine Police regarding his failure so far to return home and are keeping hopes alive that he will eventually be found.

  1. To Economist,
    Please be mindful the rising price for fish is a direct impact on the rising cost of fuel, equipment and maintenance fishermen and other workers, farmers, etc must endure. Sure some may have prospered in earlier times. But please remember the hardship these men and women endure to put food on our plates. They have families to feed also.

  2. In life we should always prepare for the worst to come, but with GOD,we always except the best.
    I pray that whatever the circumstances that the helping of GOD may bring him safe ashore.

  3. Prayers for the family. There should be a way to track every vessel it’s almost 2023! ….like phone tracker or Apple ID trackers mandatory for every vessel to come in or leave our waters and marinas. Not every man can afford fancy boat equipment!…
