The Coast Guard was alerted to their escape around 10 p.m. last night and immediately deployed vessels to find the men. The coast guard searched all surrounding waters and near by vessels. Officers also searched around the coast line.

According to CNC3’s sources, the National Operations Centre was unable to lend assistance as it was busy with matters concerning Prime Minister Kamla Persad-Bissessar.

The air guard was also unavailable as it was assisting Dominica with search and rescue operations after Tropical Storm Erika caused major flooding and landslides throughout the country.
