Despite everyone’s best efforts, the search for the missing man, which has been hampered by strong winds and rough seas, have proved fruitless. So today, the search will be based on land. Although air operations have been suspended, rescue teams are using areas of high ground as observation points.
Issuing a statement, SANAS have asked all those aboard maritime-tourist and fishing vessels, to be on the look out. The man was wearing a black diving suit, and it should be possible to see him floating in a prone or face down position. If anyone does spot him, SANAS have asked for as many details as possible such aa s GPS position and natural markers so they can locate the body.
