As of 26 February 2024, police officials in Grenada are continuing an investigation into the disappearance of a U.S. couple after their yacht was allegedly hijacked in the town of St. George. Reports indicate that three men escaped a police station in St. George on 18 February and stole the yacht to flee to St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Police suspect that the fugitives may have killed the couple aboard the yacht which was later found abandoned off the coast of St. Vincent. The three fugitives — recaptured on 21 February — were initially detained on multiple charges, including suspicion of robbery with violence, rape and indecent assault.
