The U.S. Coast Guard is seeking the public’s help identifying the owner of an adrift dive float found this morning just offshore of La Perouse Bay on Maui. The dive float was discovered in good condition with an attached trail line.
A 45-foot Response Boat-Medium boat crew from Coast Guard Station Maui launched a search of the area along with a helicopter aircrew from the Maui County Fire Department and jet ski crews from Ocean Safety and Lifeguard Services. A notice to mariners was also issued.
While there are currently no reports of missing persons in the area, anyone with information that may help identify the owner of the dive float is asked to contact Sector Honolulu at 808-842-2600.
