This afternoon, Hugh Robertson, Minister for North America, met the families of James Male, Andrew Bridge, Steve Warren and Paul Goslin, who went missing on Friday 16 in the Atlantic Ocean.
Speaking after the meeting, Mr. Robertson said:
I have just had a second meeting with the families of the missing yachtsmen in the Atlantic. The UK Government remains in constant contact with our US colleagues and I was able to update them on the continuing search.
I’d like to thank the US Coastguard for their significant efforts thus far, and to assure everybody that the UK Government will continue to do everything possible to try and locate these missing yachtsmen.
