Update: NSRI: 4 people reported to be adrift at sea

STILL BAY NEWS - Craig Lambinon of the NSRI has just confirmed that all 4 sailors previously reported missing, were found and are well.

The 4 were adrift since Saturday afternoon when their vessel caught alight and they had to abandon ship.

At about 11:00 this morning, their life raft drifted into cellphone range and they managed to call for help.

The men were brought to land in Still Bay.

The Metro EMS were on hand to assist, but fortunately their help was not required.
