Man remains missing from afternoon dive

Cozumel, Q.R. — A diver that took to the waters on the south end of the island on Thursday remains missing.

A 65-year-old American man, who with his wife have visited the island of Cozumel for more than 25 years, has been missing since Thursday. Port and Maritime authorities confirmed they have been searching for the man but still have no trace as to his whereabouts.

Reports say that Mark Kay accessed the sea outside his El Cantil apartment complex at approximately 1:30 p.m. It was around 5:00 p.m. when his wife notified port staff that her husband had yet to return from diving.

Secretariat staff of the Navy of Mexico joined in the search for the diver, but have yet to locate him.

A similar situation occurred in February of this year when an experienced female diver took to the waters alone. Her remains were spotted four days later.
