    Found Scuba diving mask on beach in Atlantic Beach, New York on Saturday afternoon. It’s only a few miles away from where the diver went missing. Gave mask to police at 4th Precinct. Given the tides and current, I believe this would have helped search. Also, back of mask had tear. My experience says He panicked. Is anyone going to do anything about this. He could have been in jetties, maybe even alive if someone took time to look. Hope you were at least given this information. Also, mask maybe all family gets, Please look into this.
