Very sad chain of events... keep the focus and energy on those things that matter and on the power of prayer. Godspeed to all the families and friends involved.

As promissed, the DNR had made it to the site Thursday morning. Unformtunatly, using the side view sonar, the original "area of interst" has moved. Remember, this is a full 36 hours later from their previous sighting. Furtrations are running high. There were 3 DNR boats, 2 coast guard auxillary boats and approximently 15 friends and citizen boats. There were no sighting of Pat. Please, do not use this thread for rummers. I am doing my best to present the facts in this unfortunate situation. Last night Bobby had surgery to insert a stent into his kidney. The fear was that he was still bleeding internally. The fact is it was not bleeding but urine was in his spline. The surgery was a success and he slowly retuning to the Bobby we all remember. Rob and I left the hospital last night at the 9:00 pm. The DNR investigator, after numerous requests, had informed me, that they may allow me the oppertunity to "pickle" the engines on the boat on Monday. I have contacted Jason Moffit (Bobby's boss at Newberg Marine and previous owner of the boat), to assit, me in this. This morning, it's colder in the low 60's and light rain. I am leaving the dock now in the continuing search for our brother. Thank you again Augie, Allen, MIke, Bill and Pattie, and the rest of the OPA and Friends, for you support.

It took 21 days to find our frined Martin Spradlin 2 years ago in the middle of winter.
Hang in there and be strong, you will find Pat soon.

God Bless.

Pat and Bobby have both been in our thoughts and prayers since this happened. I know how sad .... devastated ...... helpless .... those of us on the outside feel. I cant imagine what you guys that were the closest to Pat are feeling. We all have our own memories ... Pat stories ... I wonder if he had any idea how many lives he touched.... how many people miss him .....

Thank you Guys and Gals for the updates. God Bless you for your efforts .......

I have just gotten word from Bobby's sister that Bobby is being moved from ICU into a privet room within the next few hours. I'm sure everyone, wants to be able to talk with him, but please try and limit your calls to just a couple brief words. Hes is still very week and in a lot of pain. Thank you again Joe.
