KEALAKEKUA, Hawaii: As the search continues for 15 year old Tyler Madoff, who was swept out to sea by large waves at Ka’awaloa near Kealakekua Bay, his parents flew in to Hawaii and addressed the media in a press conference.
Michael and Marianne Madoff spoke to a print reporter and a camera crew at the Sheraton Keauhou Bay Resort on Sunday morning, expressing their thanks for the efforts of those involved with the search and rescue operation.
Madoff, visiting with a tour group from White Plains, New York, was said to have been exploring tidal pools near the Captain Cook monument when a large wave surged upon him and other kids.
Another 15 year old boy was seriously injured during the incident, and Madoff has been missing ever since.
