(ZIZ News) — The search continues for Dieppe Bay teen, Wilson Caines.
Caines went missing on Tuesday June 30th during a fishing expedition with another fisherman.
Police Public Relations Officer, Inspector Lyndon David said as the search continues, the search and rescue party has expanded.
“Well the police and the Coast Guard continued the search and have been assisted from yesterday (Wednesday) by the Marine Coordinated Research Center from Fort de France Martinique, which is a unit of the French Navy and we’ll be using it here in the search and rescue mission in terms of locating Wilson Caines,” he said.
Inspector David said the unit from the French Navy will step up the search and rescue capabilities.
“They’ll be doing an extensive search of the possible areas where Mr. Wilson Caines could be found. So we just want to let the family members, friends and the general public know that the search has been stepped up to a level where we have our regional partners from the French Navy assisting,” he said.
While the Police P.R.O. could not say exactly where the French vessel would search, he said the team would be looking at areas where the sea current is presently drifting, which includes around the northern portion of the island.
The other fisherman, Chris Dorset, is currently assisting the police with their investigation.
