Honduran woman missing in Belizean waters

BELIZE CITY, Wed. Jan. 12, 2022– A Honduran national, 21-year-old Angie Peña, who was last seen jet skiing off the coast of Roatan, has been missing for over 10 days, and the Belize Coast Guard is currently engaged in a search in the country’s waters in an effort to locate her.

According to numerous reports, Peña was on a jet ski in the West Bay area of Roatan, Honduras, on New Year’s Day when she disappeared. Her family told a Belizean media outlet that they believe she drifted into Belizean waters and that they remain hopeful that she will be found.

As a result, the Honduran authorities sought the assistance of the Belize Coast Guard. So far, the Coast Guard, with the help of Fisheries officers at Glovers Reef, has recovered several items that are believed to be the property of the victim. The items include a “kill switch” for the jet ski that Peña had been riding and a life jacket that is suspected to be hers. These were handed over to the Honduran authorities.

The Belize Coast Guard, in conjunction with the Honduran authorities, continues to search for Peña.
