- INSIST ON A DIVE
- EXTEND THE SEARCH PAST THE 96 HOUR WINDOW
- GET LOCALS OUT ON THE PONGAS BECAUSE THEY KNOW THE TERRAIN
You asked how you could help, this is how you can. We desperately need your help now and this can actually make a difference. If we lose the search effort our fathers lives depend on it. We implore you to please help now.

BELOW IS A TEMPLATE LETTER
Dear [ ]
As you know, in the early morning hours of July 3, a fishing boat capsized and sank 300 miles south of San Felipe, off Mexico's Baja Coast. What you may not know is that the search for the remaining men from that boat is scheduled to end after 96 hours—tomorrow morning. A grassroots effort by friends and family of the missing men has garnered media attention and volunteers, but more help is needed. Your help.
I am making a personal plea for you to use your influence to persuade the Coast Guard and Mexican Navy to:· Extend the search window beyond 96 hours
· Organize a search of the surrounding land by locals who best know the terrain
· Coordinate a dive of the accident site
Please do not let these opportunities pass by untried. Please do not condemn the friends and families of these men to a cruel and desperate limbo. Please do not condemn these men to be lost to their loved ones forever.
You hold 7 human lives in your hand. Please help bring them home.
