Anthony Mariyadas is a father of 4 children and he is a fisherman from Pesalai, Mannar.
 
11 days ago he left the shore of Pesalai in a boat with 2 other fishermen hoping to return with a good catch.
 
However, due to rough seas, Mariyadas was thrown out of the boat into the sea.
 
Although other fishermen tried to find him, they could not find him.
 
Everybody thought that Mariyadas might have drowned and his relatives used to visit Pesalai beach for the last 10 days thinking his body would wash ashore.
 
However, Mariyadas, as well as his children, were lucky.
 
An Indian trawler has seen Mariyadas in distress and they have rescued him.
 
Later, they have handed him over to Rameswaran Police.
 
Thereafter, a Head of a fishermen society in Rameswaran has called Mariyadas' home to inform the good news.
 
Now the relatives are seeking the support of Indian Deputy High Commissioner in Jaffna to arrange the return of Mariyadas.
