Evan Neal’s Boat Found; Neal and Employee are Still Missing

It’s been two months since Evan Neal and his employee, Anthony Reneau, went missing off an island. Today police confirmed they have recovered one of the boats that belonged to Neal. On Wednesday, patrol team discovered the vessel and another boat among some mangroves. There was nothing onboard to provide police with a picture of what happened to the missing seaman and his worker. Back in January, Neal and Reneau went missing from Mapp Caye. His other employee, Edinio Humes, was discovered murdered and dumped inside a latrine on the caye. Today, police say that the men are still presumed missing and there is still an open investigation into their disappearance.

“They visited, along with Coast Guard personnel, the Mapp Caye area again. There between some mangroves police found one of the boats by the name of Shannon, that was reported missing, along with its engine. The boat was found between the mangroves but there was nothing else inside of it, only small fishing equipment inside of it. There were several instances that police were visiting that area. That is a wide area with many channels and police were going through different channels. Fortunately, yesterday, they were through one of them where police found that boat and another boat that was reported missing about four years ago. One of the boats that was reported missing was submerged and it was brought up by coast guard.”
