A maritime search was launched early this morning (July 27) after a 29-year-old man was reported “missing from a boat and believed to have fallen overboard”.
Police say the man last seen aboard the boat as it travelled back from Paradise Lakes to Albuoy’s Point around 1:55am.
A spokesman said: “It appears that the local man took part in a cruise on a private vessel with several other passengers and was last seen aboard the boat as it travelled back from Paradise Lakes to Albuoy’s Point.
“The Maritime Operations Centre was alerted and a maritime search was commenced by the private vessel involved – with marine police, a Bermuda Fire & Rescue Service vessel and a pilot vessel joining the effort in the waters between Paradise Lakes and Albuoy’s Point.
“The maritime search continues, with nearby islands also being checked. However so far, the 29-year-old man has not been located.
