TULALIP — People from fire, fishing, law enforcement and personal vessels continued searching for Charlie Cortez, a Tulalip police officer whose boat capsized after a rogue wave hit it Tuesday night, on Sunday.
Tulalip News reported that the search from the past week persisted Saturday with plans to resume the next morning. A volunteer briefing is scheduled for 9 a.m. at the Tulalip marina building, 7411 Tulalip Bay Drive, Tulalip.
Vessels from Tulalip and local tribes’ fisheries, Tulalip Bay Fire, the Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office, and the Seattle Police Department have helped, as well as private boats. The coordinated search patterns can be joined by texting 360-926-5059 with your vessel name, captain’s name, contact number, area you’ll be in, and time on and off the water.
