Both the American and Mexican governments are working to find our missing loved ones, which is very comforting to the family in building confidence. As you can imagine, there is a lot of political 'red tape' that we are trying to cut through, which the family is finding very frustrating, but we continue to stay positive and want to keep our efforts going strong.
The challenge is trying to find the right balance to show our support to the American and Mexican governments while trying to keep an appropriate amount of pressure to keep the search alive .
The families got more information on the efforts of our U.S. Coast Guard in terms of the equipment they are using, the time durations they are able to actively search, the logistics of the C-130 for fueling and such and more specifics on the search efforts. This information gives the families some comfort that the search effort is combined between the U.S.C.G. and the Mexican Navy.
