Coast Guard suspends search for Navy Sailor

HONOLULU - The Coast Guard has suspended its search for a Navy sailor Sunday after exhaustive efforts to locate the man who went missing during an open ocean training exercise Tuesday.

Coast Guard, Navy and Marine Corps crews worked with Honolulu Fire Department and Ocean Safety to search an area over 24,000 square miles using aircraft, cutters, small boats and shore personnel.  

"In this case, I have the heartbreak of informing not only the family, but a close-knit military community, that a loved one could not be found," said Capt. Joanna Nunan, commanding officer of Coast Guard Sector Honolulu.

For more information regarding the search, contact the 14th Coast Guard District public affairs office at (808) 535-3230.

For more information regarding the Navy sailor, contact Lt. Cmdr. David McKinney at (619) 522-2816.
