I just pray that they find them, unfortunately it may not be alive, but the family does need closure.

Hold your kids tight and be thankful for the life you have. This is so sad! IF you believe in this sort of thing, pray for them and everyone involved!

I think this is so sad! I know it's not like the lake or anything, but is it possible their bodies could wash ashore? Would sharks have gotten them? Gulf of Mexico I think they were in.

Still, it's incredibly sad. I wish blessings on their families.

Anything is possible, but being 30-35 miles offshore floating in salt water with many different currents, I think it is highly unlikely they will wash ashore. The gulf is VERY infested with sharks because of warmer waters, and because they were fishing, I'm sure sharks were already drawn to the area because of baiting.

This is a very sad situation, and the families and friends have to be devasted by this. I know I wouldn't want to ever give up looking and praying for a miracle.
