The police force in St Vincent and the Grenadines is investigating the disappearance of a vessel and its crew.

The vessel is ‘M/V Guidance II.’

Its last known position was in the Canouan island harbour, on July 1, the day that Hurricane Beryl made landfall in the area.

The local authorities shared that Maxwell Burke of Canouan is the captain of the 150-foot vessel with a white superstructure and a crew of five.

An official statement says it is believed that the vessel’s communication and GPS systems are likely damaged, as the last known position indicates the ship was adrift many miles.

It says there’ve been some unsubstantiated claims that the vessel and its crew were found, but these rumours appear to be false.

The police are appealing to the public for any information that would lead to the safe recovery of the vessel and its crew.
