The RCIPS and CICG wishes to advise that the search and recovery efforts to locate the missing male who jumped overboard on Tuesday 24 November, have been ongoing over the past seven (7) days with negative results. Due to the elapsed time, and weather conditions with no positive leads or sightings the CICG has made the strategic decision to conclude search and recovery efforts and unfortunately declare the missing male as presumed deceased as of 6:00 pm yesterday 1 December.
