U.S. Citizen, NJ Resident Lost in Honduran Waters, Family Seeks Assistance to Finance Search
May 13, 2009 – Joseph Dunsavage, Sr., (photo below) has been missing in the waters off Roatan, Honduras since Sunday, May 10.
He was last seen in a 9.5” x 5.5” white catamaran with a blue bimini top (photo below). He was fishing 200 yards from the beach when he is believed to have experienced engine trouble and begun drifting southwest toward Belize or the Honduran mainland.
Due to the limited resources being provided by the Honduran and U.S. governments, the Dunsavage family has mounted their own search and rescue effort using privately financed aircraft and watercraft. They are coordinating closely with the military to ensure that all resources are being effectively deployed.
In a bizarre twist, the search efforts for Joe Dunsavage actually located another soul who was adrift for 11 days in a similar sized boat, which means there is a lot of renewed optimism and we will not stop the search.
