Three fishermen from Rose Place have been reported missing at sea since Tuesday, June 1st, 2021. They are Lennox Phillips also known as Grand Charge, Angus Webb known as Pharaoh and Bernard Dublin known as Butters.
The men who reportedly left to go fishing at around 6:00 am on Tuesday would usually return home by 6:00 pm the same day, unfortunately they never showed up. The families of the missing fishermen are praying for their safe return.
SVG TV News spoke with two families of the missing fishermen who said they are worried about their safety as they are not sure what could have gone wrong at sea.
Wife of Bernard Dublin said that her husband’s birthday was on Tuesday, the same day he left for sea, and it has been a difficult two days for her, however she is comforted by prayers.
The son of Angus Webb, another missing fisherman, told our news team that it is not the first time that his father has gone missing at sea, noting that he was part of a search party last year who rescued his father at sea.
The worried son said he is ready to go on another search and rescue mission for his father.
