The US Coast Guard announced Thursday that it has suspended a search for the missing captain of the HMS Bounty some 200 miles southeast of Hatteras, North Carolina. Robin Walbridge, 63, is presumed not to have survived.
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the Walbridge and Christian families," said Capt. Doug Cameron, the chief of incident response for the Coast Guard 5th District. ”Suspending a search and rescue case is one of the hardest decisions we have to make.”
