The Coast Guard has suspended the search for the missing victims, Gary Tillman, 43, and his daughter, Hanna Tillman, 16, determining that their was little to no chance of survival following the Sunday plane crash.
The Coast Guard suspended its two-day search Tuesday for a pilot and his daughter missing after their small plane crashed off the northeast Florida coast.
Authorities determined pilot Gary Tillman, 43, and his daughter, Hanna Tillman, 16, both of Rome, Ga., had been lost too long since Sunday’s crash and had little chance of survival.
“After many hours of searching with numerous types of surface and air assets, we’ve had to make the determination that we will probably not find anyone alive,” Capt. David Lersch, commanding officer of Coast Guard Sector Jacksonville, said in a written statement.
