30 year old U.S. Olympic sailor Trevor Moore has been missing since Thursday, June 25, 2015 in Miami, Florida. Trevor Moore, who is a sailing coach, was last seen early Thursday afternoon and also captured on surveillance tape when he left the U.S. Sailing Center in a 15-foot inflatable power boat. Daniel Leira stated that, “After lunch, around 1 p.m., I saw him go out in a blue RIB,” however, around 5 PM the boat was found tangled in some moorings.
Thursday around 5 p.m. the boat was found tangled in some moorings.
“The boat was found just off the edge of Dinner Key tangled up in mooring lines by a sailboat,” said Liz Barraco, a spokeswoman with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. “Now everyone is out here putting in an effort trying to find this gentleman.”
On the boat were personal belongings to the 30-year-old Moore who was a member of the 2012 Olympic team sailing team.
He and his teammate are featured in a You Tube video in which that teammate Eric Storck describes Moore as “a very good skipper.” Moore says making the Olympic team was one of his goals and dreams.
Among the items found on the inflatable boat were a life jacket and a GPS. A source told CBS4 the GPS showed that the boat reduced speed by Soldier Key, south of Stiltsville, and zig-zagged back to where it came from. It’s believed that Moore was off the boat at that time.
U.S. Sailing has set up a GoFundMe page to assist with the cost of the search and asked anyone who could provide information to contact contact Libby Patton at 440-781-9846 or call emergency services (Coast Guard at 305-535-4562 or Miami Dade Police Non Emergency Line at 305-595-6263).
UPDATE I: Where is Olympic sailor Trevor Moore?
The Coast Guard was scrambling Friday to solve a nautical mystery — the baffling disappearance of a world-class sailor.
The 16-foot craft of U.S. Olympic sailor Trevor Moore was found off Dinner Key Thursday afternoon, tangled in mooring lines, its engine idling. But Moore was nowhere to be found.
Multiple agencies headed by the U.S. Coast Guard continued to search Friday afternoon for the Olympian.
Florida Fish & Wildlife South Region public information coordinator Liz Barraco said the search, involving more than a dozen boats and two helicopters, was focusing on an area near Soldier Key, five miles south of Cape Florida and seven miles east of the mainland. The boat’s GPS indicates at some point there was a shift in direction and speed around a mile from Soldier Key.
Personal items of Moore’s, including a life vest, remained on the VSR rigid-hulled inflatable boat when it was found after 5 p.m. Thursday. FWC will lead the investigation once the search ends.
The U.S. Coast Guard on Saturday suspended its three-day search for missing Olympic sailor Trevor Moore.
“Our thoughts and prayers go out to the loved ones affected,” Coast Guard Capt. Michael Long said in a statement. “Despite the tireless search efforts by multiple agencies and good Samaritans, we were unable to find Mr. Moore.”
The search was called off as night fell Saturday. The Coast Guard said searchers covered more than 510 square nautical miles during the massive three-day search, which included a Coast Guard helicopter and rescue boat as well as boats from Miami police, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission, the National Park Service and members of the public.
