Andre Fraser, NSRI Mossel Bay station commander, said:At 18h25 on Monday the 10th of February, NSRI Mossel Bay duty crew were activated following reports of a canoe appearing to be abandoned among reeds on the Great Brak River between the Great Brak Police Station and Pine Creek.The sea rescue craft Vodacom Rescuer IV was towed to the scene and launched and the canoe was located and recovered. A search of the area revealed no signs of any persons in difficulty.The canoe was taken to the Great Brak Police Station and with no reports of any persons missing or overdue that may relate to this case, a Police Dive Unit and local Police arranged to canvass resorts and residents on the river to see if the canoe, which may have drifted downstream, belonged to them.In an ongoing investigation a local who lives at The Island confirmed that the canoe was his and suspects it had been stolen from his property. He will arrange to collect it at the Police Station.TO REPORT A SEA RESCUE EMERGENCY DIAL 112 FROM A CELLPHONE
