Saturday, June 18th, the captain of m.v. Alaskaborg, informed us that Frank Tuin, twenty years of age, went missing.
Alarm was raised immediately and a search operation was started. Alaskaborg was sailing off Newfounland, Canada, and was commencing her voyage from Baie Comeau to Tilbury, UK.
After a fifteen hour search- and rescue operation, by which seven other vessels, a plane and a Canadian Coast Guard helicopter were deployed, we received the message that Frank wasn’t found.
Our thoughts are with Frank’s parents, his sister and other relatives as well as with the Alaskaborg crew.
