Louisiana teen missing after going overboard in Bahamas while celebrating graduation
Bahamian and U.S. authorities are looking for an adolescent who went overboard Wednesday night time while celebrating graduation.
Cameron Robbins, 18, went to the Atlantis Paradise resort in Nassau with different youngsters from Baton Rouge to mark their highschool graduations, Louisiana State University confirmed Thursday.
Robbins graduated from the University Lab High School, which operates as a part of LSU, on Sunday.
The U.S. Coast Guard mentioned Thursday that its crews have been helping the Royal Bahamas Defense Force in looking for a missing American who went overboard from a “sunset cruise.”
The Royal Bahamas Defense Force didn’t instantly reply to a request for remark.
The journey was not a college sanctioned occasion, in line with LSU. It’s unclear what number of different latest graduates participated in the journey.
Kevin George, director of University Lab High School, mentioned the varsity’s neighborhood is “praying for the best possible outcome.” Counselors have been made out there on campus for college kids and school.
“I have been in touch with Cameron’s family and at this time, authorities are still searching for him in the Bahamas,” George mentioned in a press release Thursday. “In times like these we must come together and support each other.”
