<b>Watch The Med Alarm Phone Investigations – November 23rd 2020</b> <i>Case name</i>: 20201123-WM532 <i>Situation</i>: Alarm Phone alerted to 26 travellers leaving from Laayoune, finally rescued and brought to Fuerteventura. <i>Status of WTM Investigation</i>: Concluded <i>Place of Incident</i>: Western Mediterranean <i> Summary </i> On Monday the 23rd of November at 14.34 CET, the Alarm Phone shift team received a call from a relative alerting us to a boat on the way to the Canary Islands. There were 26 travellers on board, and they had left the previous day from Laayoune at around 03.00, heading towards Fuerteventura. The relative had last had contact to the travellers an hour after they departed, and was not able to reach them since. Therefore, the relative was worried that the travellers had encountered difficulties on their journey. Our shift team did also never manage to establish direct contact to the travellers. We were informed by the relative that the Spanish search and rescue organisation Salvamento Maritimo was already informed of the case and searching for the boat. At 16.40 CET we called Salvamento Maritimo who seemed very busy, and passed on the information we had. We also forwarded the information to the Guardia Civil who confirmed that they were searching for the boat. In the evening at 21.09 CET, Salvamento Maritimo called our shift team and informed us that they had rescued a boat matching the description of this case. The travellers had been taken to Gran Tarajal, Fuerteventura. It was not possible to reach the travellers to obtain a final confirmation of their safe arrival.
