Two fishermen who went missing from the Portland Cottage fishing beach on Thursday morning, mysteriously turned up in their community this morning.

They are 21-year-old Nsomba McNeil and 45-year-old Prince Vernon.

The men who went to the Pedro Cays on Tuesday February 18, were scheduled to return on Thursday February 20.

However, when the fishing party returned it was discovered that McNeil and Vernon were missing.

This prompted the activation of a missing persons alert and a search and rescue mission was launched by the marine police.
