It’s now a week since our good friend Huron Vidal has been missing at sea off the coast of Dominica when he was last seen around 8.30am last Thursday 11th August in his boat heading off to sea.
His family is still hoping and praying that Huron will be found safely and his daughter, Brianna, has asked the public and fisherman, “Now and again it would be good if you could just glance on the water and see if you see anything at all because we would really like to have my dad back home,” she stated.
Meanwhile, acting inspector of police Fixton Henderson has revealed in a media statement that at about 1 pm on August 15, fishermen from the community of Colihaut discovered what appeared to be human remains while at sea.
The Inspector noted that the unidentified remains which were found outside the coast of Bioche were handed over to the Commonwealth of Dominica Police Force (CDPF) via the coast guard and are being stored at a funeral home while investigations continue.
We continue to hope and pray that Vidal will be found safe and sound.
