Men Missing At Sea

FOUR men out to sea on a fishing trip from Mangrove Cay are reportedly missing. According to family members, Prince Jolly, Allan Wright, Roger Miller, and another man known as "KK", were last seen on Saturday. The men were aboard the Tropic Explorer when they left the fishing vessel in two dinghies. Mrs Rejane Jolly, Prince's mother, said she was doing all she could to stay positive as it was the first time her eldest son had gone missing while out on a trip. "We hope they are together, they left the big boat on two dinghies with two to a boat," she said. "They usually stay out for two to three weeks. This is (Prince's) third or fourth time out to sea, but (Wright and Miller) are more experienced. My husband is out there on the big boat looking for them. I'm just trying to stay positive." Mrs Jolly's husband, Jeffery - a fisherman and business owner - also serves as one of the district councillors in Mangrove Cay. Last night, a friend said the pair represented an integral part of the Mangrove Cay community through their leadership. The men were said to have headed in a west southwest direction when they left the big boat near the Fish Cays. Both the Royal Bahamas Defence Force and Bahamas Air Sea Rescue have been alerted to the men's disappearance. However, RBDF officials said yesterday that a vessel had not yet been dispatched as the organisation had no available boats in the area.
