CÀ MAU — The Natural Disaster Prevention and Search and Rescue Service Committee in the southernmost province of Cà Mau has called for help in the search for six missing fishermen.

On Wednesday, at 5:30pm, a crew member from vessel KG-93689 TS fell overboard.

Two other boats nearby began searching for the missing fisherman but have been unable to locate him.

On August 31, Trần Văn Vũ, captain of fishing vessel BT-97326 TS in Bến Tre Province also reported two crew members missing while travelling from Hon Khoai Island, Cà Mau province.

Earlier in September, three other men from two fishing boats were also reported missing.

The search continues for the six missing men.

The committee has requested local border guards, the Coastal Information Station and the Fisheries Sub-Department to inform fishing vessels nearby to help with the search.—VNS
