    It’s @northernone Cameron Donaldson. I saw the patrol boat out this afternoon with a man atop scanning the water near Puerto de Abrigo.

    Please say an extra prayer for him tonight.
    I hope he’s walking south on Carretera Norte, cussing up a blue streak!
    Here’s the latest story at 9:40 Saturday night.

    Oh (brown stinky stuff). Hope it's a false alarm. I don't know him personally but have read many of his informative posts.

    “DECEASED VESSEL FOR ROCAS BEACH IN #COZUMEL.
    #UPGRADE

    Cozumel.- Cameron Donaldson, a sports diver with extensive experience based in the island, was reported as lost by his own mother with whom he dived this afternoon in the area of Playa Las Rocas, north of the city.

    Port authorities coordinated by the ENSAR of the Secretariat of the Navy (SEMAR) Armada de México are already leading the search for it, although the alert was passed on to anyone who travels by sea in various activities in case of locating it on the high seas.

    Through friends and family, it was reported that the mother returned to land and explained that about four hours ago they decided to separate under water, but after a while of not locating it decided to give part to the authorities to request assistance.

    Specialists in nautical sports and aquatic sports reported that "Cameron Donaldson has a lot of training and experience, in fact he likes diving from the beach, so it is very possible that the current has carried him north. Passion or returning to the center. "

    "If the currents did not leave it then they threw it to the channel between Cozumel and the Continent" they added.

    It also transpired that the experienced sports diver had an underwater propeller (Scooter) so it is believed that he should have returned safely to the ground.

    However, in case it was floating someone will rescue it, "if it is not a test more than what we have always been against the local divers, of not doing beach diving to go to the wall", in reference to the Cantil de the island....”

    I hope so, too, Definitely not a false alarm. His mom was the one who reported him missing after he didn’t return from their dive.

    REPORT DIVER STRAYED BY PLAYA LAS ROCAS AT #COZUMEL.
    #ACTUALIZATION
    Cozumel - Cameron Donaldson, a sports diver with extensive experience, living on the island, was reported lost by his own mother with whom he was diving this afternoon in the area of Playa Las Rocas, north of the city.
    Port authorities coordinated by ENSAR of the Secretary of the Navy (SEMAR) of Mexico and lead the search for him, although the alert was passed to anyone who moves by sea in various activities if located at sea.
    Through friends and family, it was reported that the mother returned to land and explained that about four hours ago they decided to separate underwater, but after a while of not locating it decided to report to the authorities to request help.
    Specialists in nautical and aquatic sports said that "Cameron Donaldson has a lot of training and experience, in fact he likes diving from the beach, so it is very possible that the current has dragged him north. Maybe he's on Passion Island or back downtown.
    "If the currents didn't let him land then they threw him into the channel between Cozumel and the Continent," they added.
    In addition, it transpired that the experienced sports diver was carrying a submarine propellant (Scooter) so it is believed that he should have returned without problems to land.
    However, in case he was floating someone will rescue him, "if it is not one more proof of what we have always been against the local divers, of not doing beach diving to go to the wall", in reference to the wall of the island.
