Tristen Allen, beloved son, brother, and friend, went missing on Saturday, July 12th while diving with his father

The gifts to the Tristen Allen Search Fund, in addition to the donations of equipment, food, and other resources, allowed a broad spectrum of coverage, both public and private, when time was of the essence. Working in tandem, the governmental rescue effort was ongoing continuously during the private search period and offered both comfort and hope. For that, the family is forever grateful to so many individuals and organizations.

After the final accounting of donations and expenditures, should any excess funds remain, they will be donated to select charities where Tristen was active during his all too short a life. Some of those include: Student Faith Missions, YoungLife and James Island Charter High School Youth Athletic Programs.

Tristen’s spirit has created a wave of unity that only a sustained and spirited effort by the community who worked to save and uphold him could continue. 

The formal name of the TRISTEN ALLEN SEARCH FUND will be renamed to ALL THAT IS #41. The Go Fund Me account ( and the Harbor National Bank Account will remain open to receive donations for these causes. All additional funds will be used for the above charities.

It is through that support that they were they able to continue on and ask everyone who knew Tristen and his boundless spirit, which lives on in all of his extended family, to help keep #41’s spirit alive.
