Coast Guard Calls Off Search For Captain After Crash In Ocean Waters

MIAMI (CBSMiami) – The US Coast Guard has called off its search efforts for Captain Robert Hopkins.

His fiancé, Michele Gure looked through photos showing Hopkins, some called “Bubba”. Gure has been with Hopkins for four years.

“He’s funny. His sense of humor. He always wants to solve problems. He wants everybody to be happy,” Gure said.

Saturday, search efforts were suspended for Hopkins after 21 hours of looking for him off the coast of Miami.

“I just try not to think about it, to be honest with you. That’s how I am dealing with it right now,” Gure said.

Plane debris was left behind after the crash, 15 miles away from the Haulover Inlet Friday afternoon.

“I thought he’s coming. He is coming but now it’s just — they called the search off,” Gure said.

The captain was flying from Nassau to Opa-locka. It was a cargo flight he has flown multiple times.
