Police and 911 have issued a joint statement over alleged calls made to the 911 service from members of the family on the day the boat went missing.
Relatives of the missing five issued a statement Monday 14 March which included images of cell phones showing calls were made to 911 as early as 8:30 p. m. on Sunday (6 March) evening.
But police said they received no calls from the number of the phone the family provided and they added that checks have been made with the call provider. It says the times and the numbers given by the family don’t match up with the calls placed from those telephones.
The police, along the Department of Public Safety Communications said in a statement, “The RCIPS categorically denies allegations that it has failed to respond or withheld information regarding this tragic incident.”
