After five days of searching for three men and two children lost at sea, police say they are no longer treating the operation as a rescue. Instead they are classifying it as a search and recovery.
Family members of the missing men and children were told this information earlier today (11 March) at a meeting that was held by the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service.
The change in search tactics mean there is little hope of finding the missing boaters alive.
Cayman 27 crews took to the streets to get the people’s reactions on the recent developments. While most were reluctant to to talk some did say the time has come to stop pointing the finger and to work together.
