PD,

There is no other way to say it, it sucks and it hurts. I'm sorry to hear about this. Our condolences go out to you and the families.

Pete

I don't know if this is true or not, but I heard the local authorities are calling off the search as they don't have a clear idea where exactly the occupants went into the water. I hope this isn't true. On a positive note, I also heard that a specialist who has been very successful in recovery operations is coming down from Idaho to continue the search. He and his team are supposed to be onsite on Tuesday. I hope this is true.

Like PrecisionDetails said, it seems like a bad dream. Toby and I were not best friends, but are friends none the less. I last talked to him after Desert Storm. RIP and best of luck on the search!!

Condolences to all involved.


There are pictures of the boat at the dock and it seems to be fine. What happened?
Boating is getting scarier by the day... An unfortunate and tragic loss of life and the boat seems to be in perfect condition.

RT99- yes it's true they called off the search and they really don't know where it roughly happen. Strange deal with how things really went down with witnesses and series of events. That is good that guy is coming down to help. I hadn't heard that

If it is the guy that I think it is I have unfortunately had to work with him in the past. Husband and wife team. They were not able to find my friend but were amazing to work with. Very sorry for your loss.

The guys name is Gene Ralston.

Well today there was some good news....they found a body. They don't know yet if it is one of the people from this accident. Based on where the crash happened and where they said they found the body, it would be strange if it is one of the boat occupants. The body would have had to go against the current to get there. I hope it is one of them. We will see.
