Police and community members are continuing their search for a Petite Savanne man who went missing after falling off rocks in that area during a fishing expedition on November 4.
Police Spokesman Claude Weekes told Dominica News Online that 46-year-old Moses Detouche left his home at about 10:30 a.m. that day and has not been seen since. The incident reportedly occurred at about 1 p.m.
“He went to fish on the rocks, while there he fell off the rocks and fell into the sea. Of course, he was in distress. The police coast guard and the community and others have been in search for him since,” Weekes said.
Reports are that Detouche was last seen by another fisherman – Jonathan Darroux – who was fishing in the area at the time. Darroux had seen Detouche appearing lifeless in the sea moments after attending to a fish he (Darroux) had caught, reports say. He never saw him again.
Dominica News Online will bring details as it becomes available.
