COZUMEL —  A shrimping boat that Cuban authorities reported stolen Wednesday Aug. 3 is anchored in the island of Cozumel, but so far it is unknown how it came to arrive at the resort island.

The Navy of Mexico said in a statement that the vessel had been reported stolen by the Cuban authorities. Local press reports indicated that authorities don’t know exactly what happened because none of the Cubans has been located.

“The boat docked at the Aldora pier in the center of the city, without the port authorities being  aware of it,” said an extensive report by journalist Laudi Vera of Channel 10 television in Cozumel.

According to press reports a total of 50 people, presumably Cuban, were aboard the boat, and all were able to leave the island of Cozumel to the mainland of the Costa Maya.

The Channel 10 report said a news release from the Maritime Secretariat of Mexico, confirmed that the Cuban authorities had reported the shrimp boat as stolen.

So far it has been impossible to verify exactly what happened because none of the people aboard the shrimping vessel has been located by the Mexican immigration authorities, who were informed of what had happened by the Port Authority.
