Apparently nine fisherman have vanished at sea.
As a canoe and its nine crew members vanished on rough seas, fishermen in Takoradi, a coastal district in the Western region, are living in fear.
On June 27, 2023, the crew members set sail, but they haven’t come back.
The fisherman reportedly lost contact with their teammates soon after heading out to sea. The nine crew members’ loved ones are concerned because none of them have been located.
Speaking to the media, Kwame Tawiah, the owner of the boat, said the crew members left the Ngyirasia fishing harbour for the Half Assini area, but have not returned.
He added that they have informed the police for assistance and are hoping the missing crew will return soon.
Mr Tawiah further revealed that the missing crew called him briefly on the morning of July 7, indicating that they were all alive but had no fuel in the boat. However, their phone went off immediately, and their location is currently unknown.
Six other boats have been sent to look for the missing crew members, and MTN has been notified to help track their last location.
The situation remains tense, and the search for the missing fishermen continues.
