    There is an active thread on this situation in the Accidents and Incidents forum. Scubaboard Staff Member - Northernone - Missing in Cozumel

    However, in case you don't go there, and read all the way through, I am including this link to the GoFundMe page raising money for the air search to find him.

    Please go to the A&I forum if you want to post about the accident itself. This is strictly to bring attention to the need to fund the air search.

    I just received a message from a mutual friend about this. Sad to hear.

    I hope he can be found.

    I donated earlier, but adding to this thread, I'd urge folks to not only donate, but also:

    1. Share that GoFundMe page across all of your social media, with dive buddies, & with your dive club (whether you can donate or not, sharing a GoFundMe ups the chance of more donations).

    2. Include the info/link in your signature here on ScubaBoard like I've done below so more people see this.

    3. Help with the actual search. @Sloeber (who is the point person for the search) noted that they need:
    • Private pilot volunteers/planes in Cuba, Cancun, Houston, & Tampa/Miami.
    • CCR divers willing to make a 50-meter extended dive in Cozumel. (It’s unlikely Cameron/@northernone is down there, but they want to rule it out.)
    • His contact info is: Henry Schultz
      Salty Endeavors Scuba Center - Scuba Schools International Dive Center #809653
      https://cozumelscuba.com (312) 757-6167 from USA | (987) 111-9138 in Mexico
    This is warm water & divers have been found alive after many days swept far away. Cameron/@northernone is in a 5mm. It's possible he could be found alive with all of our help.

    I would volunteer to help with the search in a heartbeat except the chances of anyone seeing anything at 50 meters is extremely small as the profile of the wall along most of Palancar is very steep and goes to well below anything a diver would be capable of. You would need a very large team of CCR divers and a lot of support for those divers.
    I greatly applaud your effort but the deep dive team might not be very productive I'm afraid.
