Puerto Aventuras, Q.R. — The search for a Puerto Aventuras boat and crew has been suspended. The news of the suspended search came after 128 naval hours and the use of two airplanes came up empty handed.
The official search for the Moi Guadalupe and her four crew has been changed to an “active suspended” status. In a statement, the Secretary of the Navy detailed that a Defender vessel and Persuader aircraft designed for search tasks were used, but without any success.
The agency says to date, there has been no trace of the boat or crew, noting that area port captains have issued the corresponding bulletins to alert the maritime community, while at the same time, friends and relatives of the crew continue with search efforts.
As per naval protocol, the search will only be reactivated if evidence evolves that leads to the finding of the vessel. The State Attorney General’s Office (FGE) recently issued files for the disappearance of Denis Fernández, Carlos Flores, Renzo Spasiano and Martín Vega Aragez, the four crew of Moi Guadalupe.
The vessel went missing September 28 when it was last located 130 nautical miles east of Cozumel. The boat was returning from a humanitarian mission in Haiti when all contact was lost.
