NC - David Byles, 57, Pinehurst (lost in Cayman Islands), 19 January 2014
A man from Pinehurst is missing after taking a diving trip in the Cayman Islands.
The Royal Cayman Island police say David Byles, 57, has been missing since Sunday morning.
They said Byles had surfaced with his wife and the two were swimming the roughly 100 yards back to the boat when he vanished from view.
An immediate search of the area by the boat’s crew failed to find him.
Now 3 days later they are ending the search for him!? Sounds kinda fishy to me...
Rescuers in the Cayman Islands have ended their search for a North Carolina man who vanished during a diving excursion.
The missing 57-year-old man's tank, buoyancy control device and an article of his clothing have been found in depths greater than 110 feet at the Barracuda Wall dive site. But despite three days of searching, they have found no sign of David Byles of Pinehurst.
