The Coast Guard suspended the search for Marquis Cooper, Corey Smith and William Bleakley last night, but will resume the search if they receive any new information.
The Coast Guard announced, “We’re extremely confident that if there were any survivors on the surface of the water that we would have found them.”
Our hearts go out to the families of the lost men. I know we still have hope they will be found, however, the Coast Guard, besides finding Nick Schuyler, only found a cooler and a life jacket.
We hope that the Coast Guard will find something to give them a reason to search longer, any trace of them would be welcome news.
