CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY – The Philippine Coast Guard in Northern Mindanao is proceeding with its inquiry and save activity to discover a sailor announced missing since January 15.
Dominador Fuentes III, 33, was no place to be found in the MV Grande Progreso around 3 p.m. that day, as indicated by the PCG, citing data from the chief of the vessel.
MV Grande Progreso is a payload vessel carrying iron ore from Brazil and is around the vicinity of Laguindingan coast sitting tight to dock at the port of Philippine Sinter Corporation in Villanueva, Misamis Oriental.
“Ang ginawa nila sinearch ang buong vessel top to bottom, left to right, lahat po talaga wala pong nahanap. Kaya dun po nila na-confirm at then naisip po nila baka nahulog po or na-off siya sa barko,” said ENS Jherich Ybañez, Spokesperson of PCG Normin District.
(They looked through the vessel start to finish, left to right. They did everything, but couldn’t discover him. That’s when they confirmed it and they thought he could have fallen off the ship.)
Hours before it happened Fuentes could illuminate his family that he was promoted as a chief mate. That is the reason they were suspicious on the point that he jumped off the vessel.
“Gusto namin makita or malaman ano ang nangyari na ka po-promote lang niya yung araw na yun as chief mate tapos biglang nawala? Yung po ang nakakapagtaka bakit siya nawala na nandito na sana siya sa Pilipinas,” said Nelly Fuentes, the seaman’s mother.
(We want to see or know what happened because he just got promoted that day as chief mate, then he disappeared? That’s suspicious, that he disappeared when he’s supposed to be in the Philippines.)
The family has sought the help of the National Bureau of Investigation, hoping that the vessel won’t leave the Philippines until the case is solved.
The Philippine Coast Guard also informed the coastal communities along Misamis Oriental to report any signs of Fuentes.
