    I was just informed that a dive instructor on Roatan has been missing since 8.30am on Friday. Apparently he did a solo shore dive and has not returned. His name is Bill Perkins and he works at Island Diving Center / Brisas Del Mar

    I am praying he washed up someplace and someone has him. He's an amazing person.

    HIs body was found in very deep water. I saw the post on Facebook. So sad.

    Yes, Stanley Submarines volunteered to help with the search and recovery.

    My heart goes out to his family, friends and colleagues. Wish I could be there with them celebrating his life tonight.
