ISLA MUJERES, Q. Roo — A massive search for five fishermen from Isla Mujeres who haven’t been seen since Wednesday March 30 has been extended to waters off Cuba and Florida.
In the search the Mexican Navy was deploying three boats and two aircraft while private citizens and businesses had contributed several more.
On the website gofundme.com, the Find the Anastacia Fund had raised nearly US $18,000 as of Tuesday April 5, after only two days. Anastacia co-owner Dianne Le Fon De La O of Carrollton, Texas, said the money would pay for fuel for the boats and planes engaged in the search.
Ferry service operator Ultramar contributed a 140-foot-long vessel and six crew members; it left Sunday with enough fuel to last 24 hours and carried 17 Isla Mujeres residents and many pairs of binoculars.
In addition to three other private boats, the 60-foot U.S. boat Emily Bliss headed out Sunday with seven people aboard, while TV Isla Mujeres reported that the U.S. Coast Guard was also participating.
