Misamis Ori­en­tal Gov­er­nor Yevgeny Emano has or­dered a search and res­cue op­er­a­tion af­ter a 56-year old fish­er­man from Luzban­zon, Jasaan town was re­ported miss­ing af­ter sail­ing off the shore drunk, over the week­end.

Emano has in­structed the Pro­vin­cial Dis­as­ter Risk Re­duc­tion and Man­age­ment Of­fice (PDRRMO) to help the fam­ily look for and save the miss­ing fish­er­man iden­ti­fied as Apollo Ab­sin.

PDRRM of­fi­cer Fer­nando Dy Jr. said the re­port was trans­mit­ted around 9:00 a.m. Sun­day, two hours af­ter Ab­sin went fish­ing.

Dy said the fam­ily warned and pro­hib­ited Ab­sin to leave but the lat­ter did not heed and lis­ten.

“Siya ra usa naglawig sa iyang bangka nga bugsay unya hubog siya. Gibawalan siya sa pam­ilya pero wala kini mam­i­naw,”Dy said.

Ab­sin has not been found yet as of this post­ing while the search and res­cue op­er­a­tion con­tin­ues.

Dy said the gov­er­nor has in­structed to help the town’s lo­cal dis­as­ter of­fice in the search and res­cue ef­forts and seek help from the Philip­pine Coast Guard.

He said dis­as­ter of­fices of other mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties were also tapped for help.

Dy also said Ab­sin could have been buf­feted by winds to­wards the neigh­bor­ing towns or prov­inces.

“Daghan kasi­na­tian nato nga makita ang mga man­ana­gat nga buhi sa mga silin­gan nga lung­sod o sa probin­sya sa Camiguin,”he said.

“We hope nga makita nato siya ug labaw sa tanan nga unta buhi,”he added.

Dy re­it­er­ated his warn­ing for fish­er­men not to sail when drunk or when the weather is bad.

“Pahi­mangno nato nga dili maglawig kung nakainom or kung dunay pag­daot sa pana­hon,”Dy said.
