6 French citizens missing in Caribbean storm swell

Officials say at least six French citizens boating in the Caribbean are missing after they disappeared during Hurricane Sandy`s storm swell.



Paris: Officials say at least six French citizens boating in the Caribbean are missing after they disappeared during Hurricane Sandy`s storm swell.

The French Transportation Ministry told the Sipa news agency today that the group disappeared yesterday while between the islands of Martinique and Dominica.

Sebastien Roux of the Antilles-Guyane rescue service says the group left in a motorboat yesterday for a music festival in Dominica and were supposed to return today.

Roux says "people close to them grew worried when they didn`t show up." An airplane and helicopter have joined the search, but Roux says it is also possible the group took shelter in a port.

Sandy was blamed for 65 deaths in the Caribbean before it began travelling northward.
