Active search for missing snorkeler discontinued

Active search for missing snorkeler discontinued

The active search for the visitor who recently went missing while snorkelling in BVI waters last Monday has been discontinued.
Royal Virgin Islands Police Force (RVIPF) gave that indication in a media release on Tuesday, November 2.

“The active search concluded on Sunday, October 31. However, the RVIPF Marine Unit will continue to be vigilant while on patrols and is also asking all mariners to keep an eye out while on the water in an effort to locate the missing snorkeler,” the RVIPF stated.

The missing snorkeler, whose identity the police released as 75-year-old Dennis Yuki Enomoto of Canada, was among a group of persons that was snorkelling near Cooper Island.

He was last seen while the group was in the water, but when the others returned to the boat, Enomoto did not.

“A search of the boat, surrounding waters, nearby vessels and on Cooper Island itself turned up nothing. Police and VISAR expanded searches to include the Sir Francis Drake Channel and many shorelines but to date, he has not been found,” the police said.
