By BBN Staff: The Belize Territorial Volunteers (BTV) reported today that a sailboat ran aground on the Southern reef and was abandoned there.
According to Wil Maheia of the BTV, the sailboat was left less than a mile from the location of a Belizean law enforcement base.
No one was found in the boat and it is believed that the occupants just abandoned the vessel after it ran aground on the reef.
Maheia says that due to the close proximity of the boat to the base at Hunting Caye, it would have been difficult for the coast guard stationed there to not notice the boat.
Maheia says that another boat is also on the reef but it appears to have been there for a longer period.
