It is understood that Bush was with an unidentified Jamaican man who also survived. 

CNS had contacted police, Wednesday, after a reader left a comment which indicated that Bush, who was last the seen in Grand Cayman in October and reported missing 1 November, may have been found by a Honduran fisherman at the ‘Banks’ and taken to the Bay Islands.

Bush was last seen n the Windsor Park area of George Town on Wednesday 25 October before apparently going out to sea with another unidentified man in a 28ft canoe.

According to the comment posted on CNS by an individual, who said they had contacted the RCIPS, the captain of the fishing vessel Provider had found Bush along with another person and taken them to shore.

    Before we start “praising the Lord” for his deliverance: who was the mysterious other person aboard and the urgent purpose of their ill-fated voyage in a 28 foot canoe during Hurricane season?

      You have asked my question exactly. Who is this mysterious 2nd person. I heard on the marl road he died yet that hasn’t been confirmed or reported. Many questions to this ill fated trip.

    Let me guess… broke down on a fishing trip at 60 mile bank and drifted south, which is against the current, to Honduras.
