On 07 January 16, maritime authorities have been alerted on the disappearance of a fisherman and his fishing boat in the West Philippine Sea the other day. The Narvacan Municipal Police Station (MPS) told the Manila Bulletin that Ruben Callejo, a fisherman from Barangay San Pedro, this town, had ventured out to sea last Wednesday to catch fish. Other fishermen in the locality noted that the water was choppy and there were big waves in the West Philippine Sea when Callejo set out to fish. Apart from the maritime authorities, police have also asked the assistance of local fishermen in the region to be on the lookout for the missing fisherman.
