Default Artful dodger

We (family and friends ) are quite sure that something happened because he has always kept a regular communicaton with family over internet or phone when in areas with internet land access. Regular communication means in this case every week or 10 days, except during passages.
This has been specially kept over the last months due to a brother was severely ill and he was checking in regularly to ask about his illness progression.

As you can imagine MRCC's, authorities, consulates, etc have been already alerted.

Unfortunatly neither family nor friends know about communication facilities abord.
Cannot ascertain if there was EPIRB on board. Assumption is that there were no MF/HF station on board as he never communicate in this way.
Even although we have photographs we cannot ascertain yet about the builder / model of the yacht. We would like if somebody recognize it so we can give more data about the yacht to MRCC's

He arrived Vanuatu the 21st October 2013.
He reported to be at / around PORT VILA

He left Vanuatu on the 6th February 2014 destination GIZO island
