Fisherman’s body found

| 21/08/2009

(CNS): Updated 2;45pm — Police said this afternoon (Friday 21 August) that a body found on the shoreline of West Bay near the Boatswains Bay crematory west of Cobalt Coast was that of missing fisherman, Sisby Levert Barnett, aka ‘Junior’.  A member of the public found the body at around 12.35pm. Officers responded to the scene and, as is standard procedure, Scenes of Crime will process the area and a post mortem will be carried out.

Barnett was last seen yesterday morning when he had left his home address in Duxies Lane, West Bay, to go fishing. Emergency services were notified of his disappearance yesterday evening, by his brother and the marine unit began a search operation. Last night, his trailer was found at the North West Point Road launch ramp and earlier this morning, officers found Barnett’s boat overturned a short distance from the shore in the Barkers area along with a fuel tank and cooler which had washed up on the shoreline.

Police sent condolences to his family and friends.

    I am so sad that the sea has taken another son of Cayman and I send my heartfelt condolences to all that care about this familiar man.  I am sure he loved the sea and he will find peace with Jesus who too was a fisherman.

    That is so sad and awful!  My prayers go out to his family.  My own father loves to go out fishing in his little boat and I worry about him everytime he does. So sad…
