PORT OF SPAIN, April 21.—

Two expeditions set out this morning to Venezuela to obtain the release of Botha Tench, Trinidad intercolonial footballer, reported to be held prisoner at Guiria on a charge of fishing in Venezuelan waters. Friends and relatives of Tench spent an anxious day yesterday when he failed to return from a fishing expedition on which he set out Monday. Search parties were preparing to set out in search when a cable was received announcing he was in jail at Guiria.
