Doe, County Coordinator of the National Fisheries and Aquaculture Authority (NaFAA) in Sinoe, said for nearly five days the Fishery community has been in search of the missing men, but was able to rescue two alive around the Sinoe-Grand Kru coastline helpless and are currently at the referral hospital in Barclayville, Grand Kru County.

Doe said, the canoe was discovered in deep sea, assuming from his level of experience in the field that the remaining one person has died, though his lifeless or living body is yet to be discovered.

The two survivors are Kwame Eson and Papa Abakan, both of whom are between the ages of 20 to 38 years and are Ghanaian nationals.
