Many Barbudan fishermen and women joined the search for the missing crew and one passenger on Lindy’s boat last night. It put a welcome end to the election madness we have been suffering on Barbuda for months, as both parties cancelled their public meetings, stopping their relentless self-promotion. The whole of Barbuda prayed as one for the safe return of the four men on board.
Three of them have now been found – Percel Griffin, Tyrone “Nance” Joseph, and Ishmael “Ish” Harris, but the Captain Ivan “Powerline” Joseph is still lost and the search for him continues. Our thoughts are with his family at this time, and with Lindy Burton, and with all Barbudans who work at sea.
