Re: help us track a missing person

Hi, Rachel.

The southern Grenadines are a very safe area. Here are some phone numbers that might be helpful.

Bequia Customs 784-457-3044
Bequia Police 784-458-3211
Union Island Customs 784-458-8360
Union Island Police 784-458-9229

Also, you can contact the folks who run the Caribbean Safety and Security Net and ask if they would put out a call to ask if any cruisers in the area have seen Yael.

Re: help us track a missing person

unfortunately, the only thing we know is that she used to "Hitchhike" and move from one island to another with random boats, who would agree to take her. we don't even know if she ever really left Union Island, as she planed. thas why we are totaly in the dark...

There was an armed boarding and robbery last night, fortunately not here. We heard a mayday on the radio at about 10.30pm. A boat at Tobago Keys was being boarded by 2 armed men....had a fight and beat up the man and his wife a bit, took money and left.

Re: help us track a missing person

Did she have credit cards ? check with local banks, as from my expiriance when they stop selling money on the street you have got to go to the bank to get cash and then you have got to sign a reciept.Maybe able to garner some info. that would give you a time line.good luck DVC

She doesn't look too happy in the photo you posted.

With all due respect for both you and this potentially serious situation.....
What relation are you to this person??
Point being, it would be a shame for good intentioned people (Cruiser Forum Members) to help some with not so good intentions to find someone!
I do hope you don't take my question as non sympathetic.


Best Regards and luck to Yael.
Extemp.

I'm not a Capt. I'm just Mark

It was emailed to me from the guy who heard the Mayday on the VHF. And confirmed by a number of people on the VHF net this morning.

Thanks Mark! I've been right there. Seems so unusual but thankfully no one got killed.
