The wife of missing Resplendent captain Carlo Gordon says she wants answers to understand what happened to her husband for the sake of her children.

An intimate prayer session of about 50 people was held last night to pray again for Gordon, who has been missing since last Tuesday after the Resplendent sank.

All 26 crewmembers were accounted for, expect for the captain.

Gordon’s wife Jacoline said that the support she has received from the Walvis Bay community has been overwhelming. “Thank you for each prayer, each text message and the calls. I just want answers for the sake of my children. We don’t know why it happened, but I do like to think that if this is God’s way to save souls in Narraville. Let His will be done.”

She said that Carlo was a man who loved his work and the ocean.

“Each time he went out to sea, he did so with pride. We cannot give up hope, we just need to trust and believe. We will never stop praying and believing that God will give my husband back. God alone is in control, and He will answer. He sees our hurt.”

During a prayer offered by her, she asked God to turn the boat so that her husband’s body could be recovered.

The vessel Resplendent which belongs to Hangana Seafood, sank in the deep sea after it experienced trouble at around 13:00 last Tuesday and started taking in water. Its captain, Carlo Gordon, has now been missing at sea for nine days.

A search and rescue mission, which consisted of seven vessels in the search area, was deployed that same day to search for the missing captain. Last Friday, an aerial search was launched by Hangana Seafood, which is a subsidiary of the Ohlthaver & List Group.

On social media, Maurisha Poceiro Santos on behalf of the family, asked that people should not post fake stories about the recovery of Carlo. This follows after Wednesday, when a WhatsApp message went viral saying that he was found in Lüderitz.

“Please stop posting these things.”
