On March 29th, 2012 I received an email from a DM friend working the boats with Sand Dollar this morning regarding the missing diver off Santa Rosa. He writes:
Today and Tomorrow will be the last days of rescue for the missing girl. I am sure she never made the surface, I told the captain 15 minutes after we couldn’t find her on the surface. We check other boats in the area. There were around 10 boats on Santa Rosa Wednesday. If no one saw her it is because the current pulled her down. The current was out and very strong, pulling downward. This is the second time I’ve seen currents like this and I was close to not making the surface as well. It was close for me my friend.
The individual who wrote me the email is a native born to Cozumel. He has been a DM for many many years and knows the reefs very well. For him to tell me that he barely made it back up is a testament to how strong the currents must have been.
The son of the missing diver writes:
My mother still hasn’t been found. My stepfather is trying to work with the Navy and Port Authority to cover as much water as possible while the sun is still out. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers.
My stepfather is there, and I am getting all my information second hand. Thank you again for your concern. I am trying my hardest just to get updates like everyone else.
Stay tuned for more updates as they arrive.
At 4PM EST March 30, a message arrives from Cozumel to an inquiry asking, Any Updates?:
