December 15 Update

Updated December 15, 2013

Air search now by Australian pilots volunteering to help locate the schooner Nina and its crew of 7.

The Wrights, parents of Danielle Wright remain in Australia to assist in the air search efforts.

New Zealand ocean systems has now offered to assist in the currents and winds models.

Hope is what this search is all about: we need your help to get the resources back out there to search.

There needs to be serious improvements in the manner that search and rescue managers and agencies manage their day to day jobs. This includes serious changes to honor the common practices to search early not late.
