Search continues for man lost at sea

The coast guard has given up its search to find the man who was lost at sea last week.

The Bangledeshi man, who was around 22 years old, fell off a fishing vessel on 7 January north of Ari Atoll Thoddoo.

The coastguard said their vessel ‘Iskandhar’ had covered an area of 533 nautical square miles in an attempt to find the man.

The coastguard again urged all vessels in the area to keep an eye out for the man, who was last seen wearing a red shirt, and urged anyone with information to contact them on 191, 3395981 or 3398898.
