Heinz wants to find the man who survived nearly a month at sea with nothing but ketchup and seasonings to help him buy a new boat

Heinz is looking for someone to assist the business in uncovering a treasure, but it is not gold. The corporation declared it wants to locate the man to assist him in purchasing a new boat after learning that a man survived for over a month at sea using only ketchup and seasonings.

Nevertheless, they haven’t been able to locate him yet. The business posted a call for help on Instagram last week in the form of a digital message in a bottle.

“To whoever finds this message, we need your help tracking down an amazing man with an amazing story. You may remember Elvis Francois as the brave sailor who survived on nothing but ketchup and spices while adrift at sea for 24 days. Well, Heinz wants to celebrate his safe return home and help him buy a new boat…but we can’t seem to find him,” the company said. 

In December, Francois, 47, was in St. Maarten working on his boat when he unintentionally began drifting out to sea. In a video made public by the Colombian Navy, which saved him, he claimed that he had lost his sense of direction due to the unexpected shift in the weather.

After 24 days with nothing except “a bottle of ketchup…garlic powder and Maggi [soup],” he scrawled the word “help” on the back of his boat and was eventually saved.

The company claimed that so far, they have contacted both the Colombian Navy and the government of Dominica, where Francois resides, in an effort to learn more about his whereabouts and contact information.

“We’re hoping to spread the word far and wide so Heinz can finally gift the new boat to Elvis,” the company said.
