The two fish­er­men who went miss­ing at sea on Wed­nes­day were eas­ily lo­cated be­cause they had kept in touch from their phones with their res­cuers.

RFMF Naval divi­sion Mar­itime Com­man­der Le­dua Yaco said: “There were six peo­ple who went out fish­ing. Four of them were on an is­land whereas the other two drifted in a fi­bre­glass boat. “The two that were adrift had mo­bile phones which made it eas­ier to lo­cate them be­cause we had di­rect con­tact with them. “If they did not have the phone it would have been hard to lo­cate them.” Com­man­der Yaco ad­vised those plan­ning to go out fish­ing to have ba­sic ma­te­ri­als. “It was the Kokomo Re­sort divers that went out to search for the two peo­ple who were miss­ing.”
