Peter surfaced and is OK and with friends. Yes - Lynne is still missing. The coastguard has 2 boats, a helicopter and fixed wing and actively still searching.

If I can kindly ask people refrain from speculation or hearsay at this time until we know more..

Hanging onto hope. If anyone would know what to do if carried away by a random current around the corner of where the boat could see it'd be Lynne.

Praying for you Lynne.
I think you've figured out the root cause of your problems. Even sea lions get annoyed by splitfin divers silting out their dive sites. Switch back to your jets and you'll be safe from the sea lion silt prevention patrol from now on. - NWbrewer

Peter has posted on SB about it. Unfortunately, it's not the good news we've all been hoping for:

Maybe she came back up and got swept out. Maybe when it's dark her light will help them find her.
