Four fishermen in Trinidad and Tobago are missing and a search is on for them. The fishermen set sail five days ago according to the Trinidad Express and their vessel was found submerged in the waters of a village called Cedros.

The Trinidad Express reports that boat captain Heeralal Kooblal and three workers left Grand Lagoon Village, Mayaro Tuesday.

Relatives said the men were.

Kooblal, a 53-year-old seasoned fisherman, Rishi Kimchan, and two others identified as Tallman and George were on a five-day fishing expedition and relatives say they are expected to return home at noon yesterday.

Kooblal’s wife, Farida Dhunda, told the Trinidad Express that her husband was experienced, and she did not believe the men had perished at sea.

A search for the missing men began in the afternoon, and according to Dhunda, “the boat was found this morning, and we understand there were no life jackets or raft onboard, so we are hoping they were able to get out in time”.

She said her husband was a good swimmer and assured the other families that he would do the best he can to assist the other men.
