Specialist dogs arrive to help missing man search

The team, from Metro-Dade, arrived on island last night at the request of the RCIPS and joined the search as it resumed on Thursday morning. “The two dogs, which have specialist skills in search and recovery, joined the water-based search when it resumed at 9.30am,” an RCIPS spokesperson stated. Nathan was last seen on the Saturday, 26 February, close to the water’s edge at Calico Jack's bar on Seven Mile Beach.

Despite extensive searches on land and sea and scrutiny of hours of CCTV footage over the last 10 days, the only sign of the British man who worked as a teacher’s aide at Cayman prep is his mobile phone. The phone was found on the seabed by a cruise ship passenger snorkelling some fifty metres out from public beach close to the area where Nathan was last spotted.

More than 500 volunteers, some 39 police officers using marine and air resources have combed the area over the last eleven days on land and sea, accumulating more than 28,000 man hours in the search, but there has been no further sign of Nathan.

Anyone with information can call the RCIPS on 949-3999 and they can send images of the night he disappeared to nathanclarkeinfo@yahoo.com or for details on the search visit the Find Nathan Facebook page.
