“It is with heavy hearts that we now suspend our active search efforts,” said Capt. Shannon Gilreath, commanding officer for Coast Guard Sector Honolulu. “Our thoughts go out to the Passmore family and the tight-knit communities in both Hawaii and California where he was an important member.”

The Coast Guard, Honolulu Fire Department and Ocean Safety searched more than 2,330 square miles.

Coast Guard Cutter Galveston Island, a 45-foot Response Boat-Medium crew from Station Honolulu and an MH-65 Dolphin helicopter aircrew from Air Station Barbers Point searched the area.

Honolulu Fire Department, Ocean Safety and volunteers from the community also combed the area by land, air and sea.

For more information, contact the Coast Guard Sector Honolulu Public Affairs Officer at 808-842-2657.
