THE BARBADIANS who were missing at sea have been found.

An emotional Arianne Moore called the NATION minutes ago to report she had just spoken to her father Arthur Alleyne, who told her that he and his wife Sharon Went-Alleyne were “on land” in Soufriere, St Lucia.

“I don’t know the whole story… He just said that the mast is all ripped up, the sails are shredded, the engines gone, but they are alive.

“He just said ‘We are alive. Your father is not going to die like that, girl’.”

Moore said she had no other details, but her father promised to call her back as soon as he had his phone charged.”

The couple, who live in St Lucia, left there Saturday for a routine sail to Barbados, but went missing, and attempts by marine authorities in Martinique, St Lucia and Barbados were unsuccessful.

The children had appealed for anyone in the surrounding islands with access to boats, light aircraft or helicopters to join in the search as the yacht might have been drifting. (GC)
