As the family of those missing at sea prepare for the worst, they’re also sending special thanks to those police officers and members of the public who helped with the search.
Gary Mullings, Edsell Haylock, Nicholas Watler and children Kanyi and Kamron Brown have been missing for almost ten days.
In that time, although the families of those missing have questioned the police actions, they say the rank and file officers who joined in the search, deserve praise.
“I ask that god would give myself and my family the endurance to move forward from this tragedy,” said Hyman Mullings, brother of Gary.
“It’s hard but such is life. I just want to say thanks you to all of those police officers and all the people that helped us, my family and Mr. Haylock’s family for all they have done to search and rescue my family and Mr. Haylock’s family.”
Police have downgraded the operation to a search and recovery. An independent review of the actions of the RCIPS will be carried out in the future.
