The island’s Minister for Agriculture has expressed growing concern for two fishermen who have been reported missing.

The men have been lost at sea for some time now and despite a number of efforts to locate the missing fisherfolk, there has been very little success.

Speaking on the situation earlier today, Mr Moses Jn Baptiste notes that while the situation is worrying, it is also disturbing that safety and precautionary measures are not taken seriously enough by fishermen.

Earlier this year, Government stepped in to provide assistance to one fisherman who was rescued by Panamanian authorities, after his boat was found adrift.
