    This is so sad. I wish they could at least find a body. Guess we'll just keep waiting. :(

    *edit* I just realized that this article was from 8/11! There haven't been any updates on that site since then. How sad. I can't find anything newer. Anyone else?

    What I think is so strange about this is that there was no remains/debris found of the boat that they went out on. No oil slick to indicate that the boat went down or anything. From what I have read the seas were not even rough. The crew of the boat are also missing.

    Here is the latest from today's Lexington Herald...

    PLAYA FLAMINGO, Costa Rica - When recently-wed Ashland residents Mark and Laura Vockery boarded the Kingfisher I here on July 29, they planned to spend a day enjoying some of Costa Rica's famed deep-sea catch-and-release fishing.

    But there's been no trace of the 27-foot boat or the five people on board -- the Vockerys and three crew members -- for more than three weeks.

    Their disappearance has become the most recent example of the perils facing tourists in this Central American country at a time when tourism is bringing in a record haul of visitors.

    I just don't understand what could have happened to them.

    I don't sail very often (read: hardly ever), so my knowledge
    of boats is limited.

    How can a boat just go missing?
    Wouldn't another boat see them after a day or so?

    I don't know Tristan. They began searching pretty soon. If the boat would have sunk then there would most likely have been an oil slick around where it went down. Those don't disapate very quickly. Also, usually when a boat sinks, articles from the boat are found floating. I think that they met with foul play.
