The boat is owned by Johnson Cox of Union Island who is currently out of the country. Caretakers for the boat reported that an aerial search as well as a search with other boats was done on Monday but was unable to locate the missing vessel.

When Radio Grenadines spoke to Peter Stewart, who is assisting in the search, about what he thinks may have happened, he stated “I find it hard to believe it was pulled off the anchor and went adrift, but its not impossible.”

The SVG Coast Guard received the information on the missing vessel and is currently assisting.

“Union Express” was prior painted Grey when it first arrived in Union Island.
