Tank Johnson Spearheading Continued Search for Missing Boaters

Mar 4, 2009

Tank Johnson, who played college ball with Marquis Cooper, is hoping to get some experienced pilots to continue the search efforts for Cooper, Corey Smith, and Will Bleakley.

Even though it has most likely turned from rescue to recovery, finding the missing boaters would provide closure and allow for a proper burial.

The Coast Guard made it know that it dangerous to take part in such an effort without the proper training and equipment, and that they did an exhaustive search.

My thoughts and prayers continue to be with the boaters and their families.
