Fisherman’s family clinging on to hope


Share post:

THE ARMSTRONG family of St Michael, is keeping a light burning for one of their own who has been missing at sea for four days.

Last Thursday morning, fisherman Noel “Rat Cat” Armstrong, 49, did what he has been doing for decades – he took up his equipment, he went to his boat the Sea Cat, and set out to sea on a fishing expedition. He is yet to return home.

His sister, Juliette “Judy” Armstrong, said she was trying to remain strong and hopeful, despite the odds.

“He used to go out to sea early in the morning and be back by afternoon,” she explained. “He has never been out this long but I am hopeful I will see him again . . . . I sick myself so I trying not to study it too much but the family shake up; our mother [who lives in The Pine] and sister shake up,” she said.
