MIAMI, Jan 24 (AFP) - A French tourist was declared missing and presumed dead 10 days after he disappeared while windsurfing in Barbados, the island's Coast Guard said Monday.

"He was officially declared missing," Sub-Lieutenant Sernella Cordle said over the telephone. She said Jean-Marie Leglas, 62, was last seen windsurfing off the Silver Sands beach in southern Barbados.

She said the search for the missing tourist had been suspended several days ago. "All we can do now is wait for the body to wash ashore," she said.
