ISLA MUJERES, Q.Roo — An extensive two-week search for five missing fishermen from Isla Mujeres continues to turn up empty-handed. As of Wednesday April 13, the search for the missing boat and its crew has been suspended, two weeks after they went missing.
However, the Quintana Roo state congress has passed a resolution asking the Mexican Navy to restart and intensify the search efforts. The congressional effort, which also asks for help from Mexico’s Secretaría de Gobernación (Interior Secretary) and Secretaría de Relaciones Exteriores (Foreign Relations Secretary), is being led by Edgar Gasca Arceo, the delegate from Isla Mujeres.
On March 30, a local fishing boat, Anastacia, left its dock at Isla Mujeres with five fishermen who set out shark fishing along the Yucatan Channel. The men, who were due to return that afternoon, have not been seen or heard from since.
An extensive search has been underway since the morning of March 31 and has included planes, small private boats, large local passenger ferries as well as the US Coast Guard and Fifth Naval Region of the Mexican Navy.
The search was expanded to include waters into the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean as far as Cuba and Belize. The last search was conducted on Tuesday when three boats, Sun Ha, Cubana and Shaddai, along with a helicopter, took one more scour of the region while a US aircraft remained on standby.
