(CMR) Ten of 15 Honduran fishermen who went missing while en route to Jamaica last week have been found alive. The men were found drifting in a lifeboat in Honduran waters.
An oil tanker rescued the men on Thursday. The men were traveling on The Falling Star, a fishing vessel owned by Rain Forest Jamaica, when communication was lost.
The Jamaica Coast Guard collaborated with counterparts from the United States, Honduras, Nicaragua, Colombia, Cuba, and the Cayman Islands in the search for the vessel. Authorities in Jamaica are still not sure what happened to the boat.
They await more information as the Honduran Authority is in the process of getting the men from the oil tanker, which was en route to Guatemala when the men were found.
