Three missing American sailors are no longer being searched for off the coast of Mexico

The search has been suspended for three Americans who set sail from Mexico bound for San Diego more than two weeks ago, and who have not been seen since.

Authorities announced Wednesday that the search for three Americans, who left Mexico for San Diego over two weeks ago but have not been seen in more than a month, has been suspended.

On April 4, Kerry O’Brien along with Frank O’Brien & William Gross left Mazatlan, on the Pacific coast of Mexico, aboard Ocean Bound. This 44-foot sailing boat was a part of a group that included Frank O’Brien & William Gross.

Coast Guard Cmdr. Gregory Higgins made a statement.

Higgins expressed his deepest sympathy to the families of William Gross and Kerry O’Brien, as well as Frank O’Brien’s friends.

The Coast Guard reported that the three sailors had intended to stop at Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, on April 6 and report in, get more supplies, but did not arrive.

Gross’ children expressed their hope that Kerry, Frank and Dad would be sailing safely into port, tired and sore.

The Coast Guard and Mexican Navy searched an area of 200,057 square miles nautically off the northern Pacific coast of Mexico.

Coast Guard: The Americans had left “float plans” on shore, which were helpful to searchers. The Coast Guard urged mariners to follow suit. Also, people should carry an EPIRB (electronic positioning indicating radio beacon).

The Coast Guard reported that Mexico’s Navy conducted the search using assets from the U.S. Coast Guard as well as Canada.
