Jamaican authorities say they are searching for 10 nationals who left The Bahamas for Miami by boat between late February and early March and have not been seen since.
“Unconfirmed accounts indicate that approximately 10 Jamaican men travelled from Freeport, Bahamas, to Miami, Florida, by boat on Friday, March 9, 2012.
Family members of five of these missing men have made contact with the ministry to request assistance in locating them,” the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement.
“According to their families, no word has been received from them, since the date they were alleged to have gone on the aforementioned boat trip,” the ministry added. The names of the 10 missing Jamaicans were not disclosed.
