An Anegada resident who was missing at sea since Saturday has been found and is unharmed.

The man was found north of The Dogs around 9:50 on Sunday morning, BVI News was told.

He was last seen about 4 pm on Saturday, prior to his rescue.

Virgin Islands Search And Rescue representative Phill Aspinall told BVI News that the vessel on which the man was travelling had broken down while he was on his way back from a trip to the main island of Tortola.

“He actually just went to pick up supplies on Tortola and was going home [when he broke down],” Aspinall said.

    Nice to see that he was found safe and sound. Gods mercies are new every morning. We have to give him praise and thanks for such.

      It wasn’t God that found him and saved him it was VISAR….so let’s thank & praise VISAR instead of the pretend man in the sky.

        One day you are going to call on the almighty name for help. That is what Ms. Potter did, he prayed that he would have gotten found/located.

        I heard three planes was out looking for him, even the same pilot did a first trip to Anegada without the knowledge of him out there.

        Phil said he called air traffic at Beef and they were very concern and helpful.

        God is Good to have all these things fall in place.

          Christianity: The belief that a cosmic Jewish Zombie who was his own father can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him you accept him as your master, so he can remove an evil force from your soul that is present in humanity because a rib-woman was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magical tree.

        @Keeping It Real: The foolish man says in his heart there is no God.

        Yet you use the breath he has given you each day to live. When you are in trouble see if the devil gonna help you…

        very sadd
