Mr. Leoli Varela was allegedly flung from his boat last night, Thursday June 25th, as he was approaching the Port of Belize area.
Many believe that the search will eventually result in the finding of Mr. Varela’s dead body as he fell into the water when storm winds and waves caused a barge he was towing to hit the back end of his tug boat.
A search by police, coast guard and others began last night around 9:00 p.m. and continued into this morning but as of yet, Mr. Varela has not been found.
