The search for Shad Gaspard has been suspended by the US Coast Guard. According to a report from TMZ, the US Coast Guard suspended search efforts this morning. The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed with Fox News shortly after, however, that they have not called off their search for Gaspard even if other agencies have.
The family issued the following statement today:
“We would like to express our gratitude to the first responders who rescued Aryeh and to the lifeguards, coast guard, divers, fire and police departments for their continued efforts to help find our beloved Shad.”
“Shad is a fighter, a warrior and a magical soul. We are hoping and praying for his safe return. As a family we thank you all for your concern and well wishes. Please continue to keep sending your positivity and prayers to our beloved Shad.”
JTG recently posted a screen cap from a conversation he had with Gaspard:
