A massive search has been launched for the sibling duo that went missing in the sea on Januray 31. The Coast Guard have pressed into service a rescue ship and were conducting aerial search for the duo from Enayam Chinnathurai.

Marine police said that the brothers, S Registon (37) and S Anthony (35), hailing from Enayam Chinnthurai near Thengapattinam in the district, had ventured into the sea on January 31 in a fibre Catamaran and were expected to return on February 1.

However, their failure to return on the said date forced their relatives to seek the help of Marine police and Fisheries officials, who immediately alerted the Coast Guard. The CG in turn pressed into service a Dornier aircraft and a rescue ship to track the missing duo Quartet Escapes

Four fishermen had a miraculous escape after their boat sank in sea in the wee hours on Sunday.  The fishermen had set out for fishing from Rameswaram on Saturday.  After their boat got damaged and began to sink, the four jumped into the water and began calling out for help. Heeding to their call, a few boats that were in the vicinity rushed to their aid and fished them out. They were brought ashore later.

Meanwhile, the sunk boat was retrieved and brought back after a few hours.
