Help Me Find My Dad

My dad, Bill Kinsinger, was one of the most exceptional men that has ever been put on this earth impacting every single person he came across in a positive way. His love for animals was a passion like no other I have ever seen. He spent nearly every second of his free time and money out of his own pocket flying shelter dogs wherever they needed to go for safety. On January 3rd while flying south from Oklahoma City to Georgetown Texas he somehow became unconscious and his plane flew until it ran out of fuel somewhere over the Gulf of Mexico just north of Cancun. The coast guard has suspended search efforts as they don’t do underwater searches. I have decided the best response is to do what they wouldn’t and go out to the waters dragging a sonar to tell me what it looks like under the surface and recover his plane and give him a proper burial where he wished. I have already spent 500 on maps tide and depth charts in the waters. I will need a boat, side scan sonar device and provisions for the potential several month journey. And after talking with countless oceanographers and sailors all across the United States this seems to be the amount I will need in addition to the money I will get selling my truck in the coming weeks. Thank you and god bless. Any questions about my journey or my amazing father I can be reached at [phone redacted]425, jake.
