Times of Suriname - - ENGELS -

Sa­mu­el Da­bydeen, 42, of Lot 86 Tu­schen Old Road and a crew mem­ber are mis­sing af­ter their fis­hing boat capsi­zed in Ve­ne­zu­e­lan wa­ters. Ac­cor­ding to Da­bydeen’s sis­ter, Ra­di­ca, the in­ci­dent hap­pe­ned last Sa­tur­day. She told Kai­e­teur News that Da­bydeen and two other in­di­vi­du­als left on Sep­tem­ber 27, last, to ply their tra­de as fis­her­men in Ve­ne­zu­e­lan ter­ri­to­ry. Ac­cor­ding to her, on­ly one man re­tur­ned from the fis­hing trip ali­ve. She said that the in­di­vi­du­al in­for­med her of the mis­hap Tues­day. He told her that he and Da­bydeen and ano­ther we­re in a smal­ler boat when for so­me stran­ge rea­son the boat flip­ped. He ap­pa­rent­ly clung to a jar which kept him af­lo­at; du­ring that ti­me he had no idea what hap­pe­ned to Da­bydeen and the third per­son sin­ce he was bu­sy trying to sa­ve himself. Da­bydeen’s sis­ter said the man drif­ted for so­me ti­me and was res­cued by Tri­nida­di­an fis­her­men who ar­ran­ged for him to re­turn to Gu­y­a­na. The mis­sing man’s mo­ther told this pu­bli­ca­ti­on that on the mor­ning of Sep­tem­ber 27, Da­bydeen vi­si­ted be­fo­re ven­tu­ring on his trip. She said that alt­hough her daugh­ters we­re awa­re of the mis­hap, they de­lay­ed tel­ling her sin­ce she is of ill he­alth. She was fi­nal­ly in­for­med Wed­nes­day eve­ning about her son being mis­sing. The fa­mi­ly is ho­pe­ful that the man, who will be 43 on Sa­tur­day, is still ali­ve. A re­port has been ma­de to the Le­ono­ra Po­li­ce Sta­ti­on.
