KINGSTON, Jamaica:

Two United States men who were reported missing after alighting from a cruise ship which docked in Falmouth, Trelawny on January 12, and who turned up at the pier yesterday to re-embark, will remain in Jamaica for a little longer, courtesy of the State.




They were arrested at the pier when they turned up to board a ship to return to their homeland.



Reports are that the police became aware, through their Facebook postings, about their scheme to extend their stay in Jamaica.



They were nabbed by the Falmouth police.



Mayor of Falmouth, Garth Wilkinson said the town was happy with low tourist harassment and the safety of the visitors.



He said the town has been vindicated and will continue to be one of the best cruise ship destinations in the world.
