Statement by SIU President Michael Sacco on End of El Faro Search Mission (10/7)


Back to News

Although we tried to maintain hope, we were afraid this moment would come. It is difficult to describe the profound grief we are sharing throughout our organization and with the crew members’ families.


Words also cannot adequately express our gratitude for everyone involved in the search efforts. To the men and women of the Coast Guard, Navy and Air Force, we thank you and we salute you. We also deeply appreciate the efforts of Crowley Maritime and everyone else who pitched in. We know the effort was extraordinary and not without risk.


We will never forget the men and women from the El Faro’s final voyage.
