Greg Dillon Missing at Sea

Greg Dillon

A fisherman from the King’s Park area of Belize City remains missing and his family and friends fear that he is lost at sea. Thirty-two-year-old Greg Dillon left home on Saturday on a routine trip to his fishing camp. He went diving for lobsters on Sunday and by Monday left the camp at Turneffe en route to Belize City. But he never reached the mainland. His family believes that something went wrong because it is unusual that he would not come home. His boat, a twenty-three-foot skiff, has also not been located. It is known, however, that Dillon, who is a fisherman for over a decade, wanted to avoid the cold front on Monday night. Today, when we spoke with his wife, Genay Dillon, she said that the Coastguard has been contacted.

“We’ve been looking for him for the past few days. We went out there, yesterday. (Crying) We went searching for him. We went all the way to Glover’s Reef searching for him; we stopped at all the fishing camps. We literally didn’t see anything. No sign of a boat, no wreckage. When we checked the last man at one of the spots at Glover’s Reef, he said he did see a half of a drum that was floating. He saw it and circled back to see what it was. And my husband does have something like that, a half of drum that he uses to carry lobsters because he was bringing in live lobsters. He was alone, which is nothing strange because he always does so. He has his watchman out there that works with him so it is just…I don’t know where he is. I know he is strong and everybody is telling me he is a fighter and I know he is going to fight, I know he is fighting, but I just need to find him. I’m sure he is out there, probably in the mangrove somewhere, but I need all help that I can get. I contacted the coastguard and they had people searching out for him. I made a police report; I contacted TASA cause they are out there as well. My mom spoke to the coastguard today and they said they are trying to get a flyover with the B.D.F.”
