“The operator became worried and contacted other operators in the area to carry out a search but they were not sighted,” police said. “The Police Marine Unit and the Barbados Coast Guard conducted a search of the area extending as far as the Bridgetown Port but were unable to locate either the couple or the jet ski.”
Suarez’s mother, Ninfa Urrutia, told ABC, “I’ve been calling; I call and call the police, the U.S. Embassy in Barbados, they can’t provide me with any answers. They haven’t called me back to let me know what I need to do or find out what’s going on with my son. They’re just not calling back.”
Susanna Cruz, Suarez’s sister, expressed how panicked and worried the family was, telling press, “We have family members calling hospitals. No one’s answering the phone. Dead-end calls. We just know nothing.”
