Coast Guard, Navy and Marine Corps crews worked with Honolulu Fire Department and Ocean Safety to search an area over 24,000 square miles using aircraft, cutters, small boats and shore personnel.

“In this case, I have the heartbreak of informing not only the family, but a close-knit military community, that a loved one could not be found,” said Capt. Joanna Nunan, commanding officer of Coast Guard Sector Honolulu.
