Ships and aircraft from the US Air Force, Coast Guard, the Bahamian military and a volunteer group in the Bahamas searched approximately 17,000 square miles for about 84 hours, the release said.
“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the families of the missing people,” said Capt. Stephen V. Burdian, the Coast Guard’s Seventh District chief of response. “I encourage anyone with information about the people aboard to contact us as soon as possible.”
The Coast Guard didn’t release the name of the missing vessel.
