first_imgA New Kru Town family, near Monrovia is afraid that their grandfather, T.P.T. Tweh, in his late 60s, may be dead after his companion on a fishing trip Friday returned with news that the canoe capsized, separating them at sea.The survivor was rescued by Fanti fishermen, offshore ELWA beach, family sources told the Daily Observer Saturday.Mr. Tweh, headman at the Cape Maritime Agency had not been feeling well the day before the trip, family sources said.“But he wanted to go fishing because he complained he did not have money on him.”The Daily Observer gathered that Mr. Tweh was accompanied on the fateful trip by a man identified only as “I Mean It.”Always persistent as Tweh was, the pair went fishing in a small canoe and by late Friday, when they had not returned, family members got concerned and about what might have happened to them.“It was later the following day that we received information that his companion was found near ELWA and explained that he was separated from Mr. Tweh after their canoe capsized,” the family source further explained.At the visit Saturday at Mr. Tweh’s residence in New Kru Town, a large number of his relatives, including children and grandchildren wept bitterly over what might have happened to their grandfather.Meanwhile, the family reported the case to the local police depot and also organized a search party to seek the help of nearby Fanti fishermen to go on a search for Mr. Tweh.However, news reached the family that the body of a man had been sighted in Cape Mount waters of the Atlantic Ocean, and therefore family members would dispatch a team to the area to identify the body.Up to press time, there was no confirmation about the whereabouts of Mr. T.P.T. Tweh or whether he is alive or dead, increasing the family’s agony over what may have happened to a grandfather who was dearly loved by all in the community.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img
