Search Ends for Leo Finley, Missing From Roatan, Honduras

A search for Leo Finley, missing at sea near Roatan, Honduras, has been called off, according to this article in the Columbia Daily Tribune. The article said the search involved three U.S. Blackhawk helicopters and Honduran naval vessels. “The local Honduran authorities are still keeping an eye out for anything they might find, but there’s nothing new to report,” said Michael Stevens, public affairs officer for the U.S. Embassy in Honduras. According to the article, Leo was on a 20-foot Panga boat with a 40-horsepower outboard engine. The U.S. Embassy said there was no storm or inclement weather on the night of the disappearance. The Finley family believes the boat became disabled, and as it began to drift from shore, Finley tried to swim back unsuccessfully. One life vest was missing when the boat was recovered on Dec. 27. The family has requested privacy, so please respect their wishes and keep them in your thoughts and prayers. Joe Dunsavage of Edison, NJ,
disappeared under similar circumstances in Roatan on May 10, 2009. Neither Joe nor the Craig Cat catamaran he was on when he disappeared on a clear summer day was found.
