Family members of the five missing boaters say they have been overwhelmed with the support they have received from the Cayman community.
Gary Mullings, his nephews Nicolas Watler and Kanyi and Kamron Brown, along with friend Edsell Haylock, have not been seen since setting off on a fishing trip four weeks ago.
Gary’s brother said it’s the support of friends, family and even people they don’t know, that’s helped them through recent tough times.
“Being out there, persons coming in contact with me,” said Hyman Mullings.
“People that I didn’t even know. They have been very sympathetic and they’ve been showing a lot of support and a lot of prayers to myself and my families. I just want to thank the community, the public, and all of our friends for supporting us and the prayers. I just want to thank the community.”
In a statement issued by the Governor’s Office Friday (8 April), it was revealed the US-based National Transport Safety Board said it’s unable to carry out the inquiry. Officials are seeking an alternative as soon as soon as possible.
