Please help bring David Ibbotson home and help give him the send off he deserves.

As a family we are relying on the kindness of the good hearted people to help us raise the much needed funds to help us find our beloved Dad, Husband and Son.

As a family we are trying to come to terms with the tragedy and the loss of two incredible men.

To be told the search has now been called off for the foreseeable future has only made this tragic time more difficult.

We can not bare the thought of him being alone, we need him home so that we are able to lay him to rest to be able to say goodbye.

Any donations would be very much appreciated. To ensure a search is done so we are able to give David the correct send off he deserves and to support the family in moving forward after a devastating time which nobody and no family could ever prepare for.

Thank you so much for your support Ibbotson Family

Thank you again each and everyone for all your support. We are now able to ensure our searches take place. Once all the searches have taken place and all family members have been informed. I will ensure a breakdown of who was involved and what we was able to do. Also what the outcome is. We are all hoping that the outcome is we find my Dad and are able as a family to lay him to rest near to his family. Again thank you all so much for your kindness and giving us as a family the space as we can only update once we are able. To ensure we are following the regulations involved for safety. Once I know I will ensure everyone is updated fully with all the details. Danielle

Just to update, we have spoken to the the director of the civil aviation authority in Guernsey along with sark Authority’s, with a planned route. We are waiting on the permissions to be able to perform the flight. As everyone can appreciate we are just a normal family and not in the media eye. We also are relying on the professionals to advise and make the Flight plans and get the correct permission to do the flight and the dive for us. I also am wanting the searches to start as soon as possible but we are doing our best and we are just following the correct processes to get everything underway correctly and also safety for the amazing Pilots and divers who will be helping us.
