Search for missing Moi Guadalupe resumes with help of U.S. Coast Guard

Puerto Aventuras, Q.R. — The search for missing vessel Moi Guadalupe has been reactivated locally after U.S. authorities agreed to lend a hand. Due to efforts of the families, the United States Coast Guard has agreed to join in the search for the boat and missing crew.

Luis Spasian, father of one of the men on board, confirmed the assistance being given by the U.S. “The consul has just told me that because of the efforts, all the effort we are putting in and all the help from local media, the Coast Guard confirmed its participation in the search for Renzo, Denis, Martín and Carlos,” he said.

The Secretaría de Marina has also reactivated their search efforts in trying to locate the missing boat. In a statement, the agency said that the last known position of the vessel, which came from Haiti, was 130 nautical miles (approximately 241 kilometers) east of the island of Cozumel.

They said that surface units assigned to that sector, as well as an aircraft with high search capacity, have been assigned in this new effort.
