Gary Aboud, President of the Fishermen and Friends of the Sea (FFOS) is today appealing for assistance in the search for a missing fisherman.
Speaking to IzzSo Media this morning, Mr Aboud said two fishermen were attacked at gunpoint and thrown overboard around 9pm last night, while fishing near La Brea.
One of the men swam ashore while the other is missing.
Aboud said the vessel is from San Fernando.
He said calls were made to the Coast Guard but they have yet to respond.
Aboud is now calling on all mariners at the San Fernando fishing centre to help search for the missing seaman.
