Tyendinaga community members have been holding their breath since early Sunday morning when two young men went missing during an early morning fishing trip.
Sometime after midnight the two boaters launched from a small dock just off Bayshore Road in Tyendinaga and have not been seen since. The following morning a number of men in the community were contacted to help search.
The search has been extensive. In addition to the community member efforts, Tyendinaga Police have coordinated with a Griffin Helicopter from Trenton, Coast Guard Cutter from Kingston, a Coast Guard Auxiliary boat from Quinte Search and Rescue and the Tyendinaga Firefighters. All have been tirelessly searching for the two men. Divers have now been called into join the search.
Community members have been gathering at the dock on Bayshore Road in hopes of finding out what happened and to provide emotional support to the families. Facebook statuses are filled with prayers for the safe return of the two young men.
