By BBN Staff: Family members of Paraiso villager, Lionel Velasquez are concerned after being notified today, that Velasquez is missing at sea.
Velasquez works at Turneffe Island and was going from Belize City to Turneffe island on the company’s boat yesterday.
Details surrounding his disappearance are sketchy but according to relatives, passengers on the boat told them that when they were about 45 minutes away from the island, they heard Velasquez shout and then he disappeared – perhaps he fell off the boat.
Relatives told BBN that the Belize Coast Guard were informed and began searching for Velasquez. However, the efforts were futile.
The family is asking anyone who is willing to assist in searching for Velasquez or have further information to contact the nearest police station.
