Missing at sea (update)

The wreck of FV Brothers has been located underwater just off Eilean Trodday, north of Skye, late on Saturday afternoon. According to latest reports, two of her liferings were found 35 miles to the north in Loch Broom, northwest of Ullapool. There was no sign of the crewmen as the search was called off on Sunday afternoon. Police divers are expected to go down to the wreck on Monday to investigate further. The likelihood of the men, from Burghead in Moray, being found alive is diminishingly small.

The Coastguard extends its thanks to all who assisted in the search over the last few days.

I have mentioned this incident in other on-line journals, and would like to relay the good wishes of several readers to those affected by this sinking. These readers are from the UK, the USA as well as Norway.
