Second migrant vessel goes down: 30 families report missing relatives

A second Venezuelan migrant boat, travelling from Guiria to Trinidad, was reported missing over the weekend.

According to reports, it overturned near Dragon’s Mouth, the same location as where the first vessel went down last month.

Venezuelans authorities have confirmed that a search was launched after relatives reported their loved ones missing.

Relatives of the passengers alerted the authorities that they boarded a vessel on Thursday afternoon but did not arrive at their destination.
