A state helicopter completed a thorough search of both shores of Cayuga Lake today. Although it had good visibility of the lake bed up to 100 feet off shore, this air search did not find anything.
Chris’s brother, Danfung Dennis reported last night:
“Using commercial sonar on civilian ships we located five foreign objects at various depths today. We coordinated with the Sheriff to bring an underwater robot with cameras. The objects were just logs, rocks, and part of a railroad trestle. We will resume with a full effort tomorrow, then reassess the situation at 1pm on Monday. Thank you for all of your support. It’s been incredible; our family really appreciates it.”
Tomorrow the ground search along the west shore of the lake will resume at 10am and continue throughout the day. Meet at Sheldrake Point any time on Sunday to find where you can be the most help. The high winds and natural nature of the water in the lake make the coastline always changing, so multiple searches in the same area are necessary.
Thank you to everyone who has helped in the efforts to find Chris since Wednesday.
