Fred is back !

After more than 3 months, Fred has been found. As you could read on facebook, we received a lot of emails from Fred fans, who missed him and were really concerned. 4 weeks ago we decided to start a search operation to find Fred.

The last we knew, that Fred arrived in Costa Rica with the dredger „Dravo Costa Dorada“. Fred was passed on to somebody and from that point, we didn´t hear anything from Fred.

So we installed a “Rescue-Team” and sent a lot of emails to port authorities, pilots etc etc and also to the crew of „Dravo Costa Dorada“.
We also experienced support from fans of Fred. Somebody offered to help us with our search in Spanish. Another fan believed to have seen Fred on the bridge of a passenger vessel.

The dredger „Dravo Costa Dorada“ was still busy in the working area in Costa Rica and started a local search. From now on, they were a very important part of the “Rescue-Team”. It seemed, that Fred has been passed on once more and then was simply forgotten. During a shore leave, the crew of the „Dravo Costa Dorada“ made some phonecalls and finally found Fred and went to pick him up and took him back on board.

What an incredible rescue operation by the crew of „Dravo Costa Dorada“.

Thank you so much for your fantastic help !
