KINGSTON, Jamaica – After scouring an expanse of white-capped waters off Jamaica for three days, rescuers lost hope of finding a prominent New York couple or recovering wreckage of their small plane that traveled on a ghostly journey last week after the pair was apparently incapacitated.
On Sunday, the Jamaican military and the U.S. Coast Guard both decided to suspend air-and-sea searches for Laurence and Jane Glazer, whose single-engine plane flew on its own for 1,700 miles Friday before running out of fuel and slamming into deep waters some 14 miles off Port Antonio on Jamaica's northeast coast.
U.S. Coast Guard Capt. Todd Coggeshall, chief of response management, said the agency called off search-and-rescue operations with "extremely great care and deliberation." He said a decision is made to suspend a search only after the "area is saturated several times with a maximum number of assets, resources and crew effort, and persons in distress are still not located."
