No help from US frustrates Niña search group

Updated:

Efforts by the United States to find downed Malaysian Airlines flight 370  have raised eyebrows with Ricky and Robin wright, as they continue to search without government help for their daughter and six others missing at sea.

As many of you know the Lafayette couple has devoted their time, money and effort to find their daughter Danielle. They even stayed 3 months in Australia searching by plane, boat and foot for the missing crew. Danielle along with six others went missing back in June after their vintage yacht the Niña vanished in the Tasman Sea.

The Wrights say while they are happy the United States lent its resources in the search for Malaysian airlines flight 370. They wish the same assistance was given to them when they needed it the most. Ricky Wright says they asked the United States to sharpen a satellite image taken back in July that appeared to be a boat drifting in the Tasman Sea. Wright says they refused to help.

Another thing that frustrated the Wrights was finding out the United Sates was in the Tasman/Coral Sea area from June to August where the boat could be. Wright said they were doing routine exercises with an aircraft carrier, planes, and boats. They again refused to assist in any search efforts during that time. The Wrights do not understand how a boat containing 6 Americans could be dismissed by our Government.

Although the Wrights say they still believe those onboard the Niña are alive, at this point it will be up to god to bring them home.
