People usually say that being newlyweds is very enjoying and the honeymoon that comes into the picture is a sweet and memorable experience of a lifetime. Newlyweds often look forward to their honeymoon since it would be the time for them to experience the highest level of affection. The couple, Patsy, and Henry thought that a honeymoon trip in Mauritius was one of the best things they could ever experience in their life. This is something they had both been planning for a long time. Henry was a sailor by passion and he always loved exploring new places. His last voyage before their grand wedding was to prepare for their dream honeymoon destination. This was a year before their wedding. Henry wanted to find the best tourist spots they would visit during their honeymoon trip. However, everything did not happen according to plan. Imagine how it would have felt for your loved one to suddenly disappear in spite of all the preparations and plans. I can literally feel the pain and hopelessness that will always be over your head like a dark cloud. This is a story of a young couple who were about to get married, Henry and Patsy. Getting married is something they had both been looking forward to, and their dream honeymoon destination was Mauritius. Just a year before their grand wedding, Henry decided to sail forth to the beautiful island of Mauritius perhaps to make preparations for their dream honeymoon trip to the island. However, until the present, Patsy, despite all hopelessness, is still waiting to see and be with her loved one, Henry. Where could Henry be? No news or phone calls. The search for Henry by the government resulted in no information regarding his whereabouts or condition, and Patsy is heavily depressed. Is there any end in sight to this mystery? Read on.
The five years that has passed without Henry has been excruciatingly painful and unacceptable to Pasty. Every day, she wakes up to pray and seeks solace from close friends, families, and relatives, but no news has ever informed her regarding the whereabouts of Henry. Pasty and Henry had been planning their marriage since their college days. They both knew; nothing in this world would make them feel so complete, happy and satisfied in achieving their goals together. For Patsy, it has been lonely and endless moments of pain but she still waited each new day to see here love again. Agony and intolerability have been the result of each passing day since the day Henry sailed forth to Mauritius. The thought of Henry would always remind her of the sweet memories they had spent together and especially during their college days. “I don’t know where to start from but the search for my husband has been a painful experience and especially now that, his son and only kid John is old enough to start going to school stating Patsy. On that fateful day when Henry left for Mauritius they made love, “I am always scared, I spend my days crying, hoping and wishing to see him again “narrates Patsy.” The only thing I don’t want to think is the possibility of never seeing him again “she asserts.
Henry and Patsy started dating back in college. According to many, they were naturally meant for each other. They complemented each other in many ways, and everyone said they were destined to get married and live a happy life together. To date, Patsy has not yet discovered the mystery in the disappearance of her love and which aches her heart every single day. “It has been five years since I bid him goodbye with a hug, hoping he would return soon for our wedding,” says Patsy amid sobs. This is probably the worst experience anyone deeply in love can go through. They had been talking on the phone until the time Henry wished her goodnight. That was the last word she ever heard from her man. She actually wished to settle down and have beautiful children together, but life can be very cruel and ruin a beautiful dream that was blossoming into a full flare of happiness and love.
There have been mind-boggling stories of mysterious disappearances of planes, ships, sailors, and even divers with no trace of their whereabouts. While some have been found kidnaped or killed, however, for Patsy, it has been years of agony and a story that still doesn’t have an ending. The government had deployed its navy to search for the lost citizen in the raging waters of the Indian Ocean but with no trace. He never drowned in the vast waters of the Ocean. His boat was found docked along the Beach of Mauritius Island, and this finding has complicated the search for Henry. This sounded more perplexing than fiction and perhaps a complicated situation with no concrete approach. According to the authorities, families, friend and relatives, Henry anchored safely on the coastline of Mauritius but what remains a mystery is his whereabouts for over five years with no trace. Records indicate that he had checked into one of the hotels on the day of his arrival but what had happened after that? No one knows where he could have gone the following day when he woke up. He loved sailing and fishing a lot. Being a sailor means always being on the go too far lands and islands. It is always about discovering new places. While the search for a missing sailor continues, for Patsy, it is a wait and watch the scenario. Patsy believes that Henry is still in the woods of the Mauritius, or perhaps towards the south where he had been stuck in a place with no network to enable him to communicate to the people back home. It is hard to guess especially because sailors love to do many things, like fishing. Discovery is always a top priority, and just like the ones who sailed many centuries ago and came back with the news of new finds and artifacts.
Back home, Henry had sired a baby boy whom Patsy named John. Five years is a long time, and John has reached the age of attending kindergarten. He began asking his mom about the whereabouts of his dad. It is probably one of the most difficult things to explain and especially to a boy of John’s age. At the age of five to ten, children tend to be curious and inquisitive. This is something Patsy finds difficult to cope with and sometimes get furious about. The only thing she tells John is that his father has gone on a long journey and would soon be back. Sometimes it forces her to hide herself in agony as the wait is too agonizing, and she doesn’t want her only child to know about it. The memories of Henry keep lingering in Patsy’s mind and the presence of a son they have together reminded her so much of her loved one.
Patsy expected that Henry would be away for only four months. However, it took longer and Patsy began to worry. He had not sent her an email, and the only phone call they had was on the fateful day Henry left. In the fifth month, Patsy, could not bear it anymore. There was no news about Henry. The news about Henry being gone went viral. A search was organized with the assistance of the government. While some claimed he could have probably never sailed, others said he crossed over to Mauritius. Every day for about one year, print and broadcast media ran the story and pictures of Henry. They even published the sufferings of the lonely wife waiting for him. It was the talk of the town. It was a tense year for both the families of Henry’s and of Patsy’s. Hopes of ever finding Henry dwindled among many, including the government until the search was closed after one and a half years. The press interviewed Patsy, and each media house, both broadcast and print, had their own account, analysis, and approach of the story.
