German sailor missing off Guyana

Axel Verlohr's catamaran was found washed up on Wakenaam Island off north Guyana. No crew aboard. The boat had been vandalised !
His sister confirmed he had been sailing from western Africa to Trinidad and Tobago.

“... A written note found aboard the vessel “states that he was fed up with life,” Maritime Department spokeswoman Akosua McPherson said in a phone interview. She said Verlohr’s sister, whose contact number was written there, told police he was depressed...”
