Missing crew member’s family looking for closure 13 days after cargo vessel sunk.

13 days after the cargo vessel Miss Lisa overturned in the Demerara River the whereabouts of the cook Jerold Fraser who disappeared  in the mishap is still unknown.

Fraser’s family is beginning to accept the reality that with each passing day hope is fading, however they believe since the searches have come up empty that their loved  one might still be trapped under the boat. The missing man’s  sister Desiree Fraser and niece  Sharon Pickett told capitol news that they are looking for answers and are complaining that nothing is forthcoming from the authorities or the owner of the vessel.

 The cargo vessel Miss Lisa was destined for Trinidad and Tabago  when it overturned  a few days ago ; there  are reports that  while the vessel was sinking Fraser reportedly went back to collect a bag that was left behind.

The Vessel capsized  shortly after leaving the Muneshwer’s Limited Wharf on Water Street, Georgetown. Six members of the seven man crew were rescued. Some fishermen believe that the vessel was carrying more than its  weight allowance  of cargo , but that was ruled out by the captain of the vessel. He said that the boat was made to accommodate 750tons and on the day in question the boat was stock with just around 550tons.
