Pete Griffin’s disappearance
This weekend in Pensacola, search operations are still underway in search of missing boater Pete Griffin. Since his boat capsized in Pensacola Bay, close to NAS Pensacola, on Tuesday morning, the 29-year-old has been missing.
What did Griffin’s mom confess?
Stephanie Diaz, Griffin’s mother, has stated that they have no intentions of giving up on their search for him. Diaz declares that she will continue to look for her son.
She declined to speak to the media but claims that her son and his friend spent two hours swimming together after their boat capsized early on Tuesday morning. His pal made it to the coast and was brought to a hospital after they were separated.
Friends and family Griffin will keep looking. They strolled Fort Pickens’ pier on Wednesday morning. According to Diaz, friends, and relatives will bring in drones to aid in the search. Yet, the hunt is not simple.
The assistant director of Escambia Search and Rescue, O.B. Pettit, stated that failure was frustrating because
“the worst thing on earth is to do this and not be able to bring closure to the families and stuff, which is the whole objective of being here.”
Florida Fish & Wildlife and Escambia Search and Rescue are collaborating to find Griffin. The most crucial step, according to Pettit, is to determine where the person entered the water.
After that, we consider the wind, current, and wave, as well as what they were doing and how they were dressed, to determine which direction they may have taken and then proceed in that same manner.
Diaz expressed her gratitude for the community’s efforts and devotion to finding her kid.
Griffin’s mother is requesting that anyone with information that could be useful get in touch with the FWC or Search and Rescue. After taking a break on Thursday, Escambia Search and Rescue will resume the search early on Friday.
