Fishermen walked the shoreline of Trinidad's south coast yesterday as part of the search effort to locate Selwyn Scipio, one of four fishermen who were left adrift kilometres out at sea, after their fishing boat sank last Friday.
The Coast Guard and Air Guard were also searching the waters between Trinidad and the mangroves in Venezuela.
The body of one of the fishermen, Phillip Beharry, of La Ruffin, Moruga, washed ashore at La Lune Village on Monday.
Two other men—Richard Rahim, 31, and Thrif Gulcharan, 27—survived a night out at sea and made it back to land on Saturday.
There is little hope of finding Scipio alive.
He was aboard the boat Boyo and Carla headed back to the Moruga port after a fishing expedition last Friday night, when one of the outboard engines broke and fell into the water.
It was while trying to retrieve the engine that a swell swamped the boat, sinking it within seconds.
Rahim and Gulcharan were able to put on the two life jackets on the boat.
Scipio disappeared soon after. Beharry treaded water throughout the night but floated away with the currents on Saturday, the survivors said.
