As two men remain missing, presumed drowned, off the western and northern coasts, the Barbados Met Office is for a second straight day  warning the public to stay out of the water.

Acting director of Barbados Meteorological Services Sabu Best, says sea conditions remain hazardous, especially in those two areas.

Mr. Best stresses that a high surf and small craft warning remains in effect for Barbados, although somewhat better conditions are expected tomorrow. But for now conditions remain hazardous especially along the eastern, northern and northwestern coasts.

Up to this afternoon a coast guard search continued with no sign of the missing men.

Jerome Edwards of Gays, St. Peter was last seen being dragged under  by a large wave in choppy waters at Speightstown, St. Peter yesterday.

John Watson, the father of the 19 year old Samuel Jackman Prescod Institute of Technology student says his son was a good boy with high expectations.

He says that beach days on Sundays was his regular routine.

Meantime, a 61 year old British visitor, Mark Smith, disappeared in similar circumstances near The Beach House at Sunset Crest, St. James after reportedly ignoring warnings not to venture into the very rough waters. He had been staying at number 85 Hibiscus Avenue, Sunset Crest.
