NEW ORLEANS – The Coast Guard has ended the search for the missing pilot and Cirrus aircraft in the Gulf of Mexico, Monday.

The Coast Guard searched 17,458 nautical square miles for approximately 79 hours.

Missing is Bill Kinsinger, 55, of Oklahoma City.

“Ending a search is a difficult decision that we put the upmost thought and consideration into,” said Capt. David Cooper, chief of incident management, Eighth Coast Guard District. “Dr. Kinsinger was a well loved man and our hearts go out to everyone impacted during this tragic time.”

Involved in search were Coast Guard aircrews from:

The motor vessel Gas Wisdom responded to a Coast Guard request for vessels in the area to assist and searched Wednesday evening. The Mexican Naval Secretariat had two ships, the ARM Demacrato and the ARM Guanajuato, involved in the search.



Coast Guard searching for missing aircraft

NEW ORLEANS – The Coast Guard is responding to an aircraft emergency in the Gulf of Mexico approximately 118 nautical miles north of the Yucatan Peninsula, Thursday.

Watchstanders at the Eighth Coast Guard District command center in New Orleans received a report from the North American Aerospace Defense Command, Wednesday evening that one person aboard a privately owned Cirrus was unresponsive likely due to hypoxia. The pilot was leaving from Oklahoma City and was headed to Georgetown, Texas.

Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base New Orleans launched aircraft to investigate and reported the pilot was slouched over and appeared unconscious.

The Eight Coast Guard District command Center has been coordinating with SEMAR, the Mexican Navy.

District Eight watchstanders directed the launch of a Coast Guard Air Station Corpus Christi HC-144 Ocean Sentry aircrew, a Coast Guard Air Station Clearwater HC-130 Hercules aircrew and a Coast Guard Aviation Training Center Mobile HC-144 Ocean Sentry aircrew to search for the aircraft.
