"Dear friends and community members,
We would like to send our love and appreciation for all of your efforts and well wishes. Here's an update on our continued search for Tod, aka Papa.
As many have heard, Tod fell out of his boat on Tuesday at 3 pm just off of Cypress Grove, north of Hog Island Oyster Company. Search and Rescue, Marin County, fellow local oyster businesses and many, many community folks went out looking for him immediately. While official search and rescue has suspended their search, friends and family are continuing their efforts to locate Tod.
Many people have asked how they can help. Thank you. We appreciate all the help we can get. The best way that you can help would be to continue to search on the water by boat or walking the shoreline. Please of course keep in mind your safety, wearing a PFD, paying attention to the tide and always aware of current weather conditions. Because of our location, the tide and wind could have taken him anywhere along the bay. All eyes, in all locations, is tremendously helpful to us. If anyone locates him, please immediately call 911.
While the family continues the search, business operations at both TBOC and The Marshall Store remain open and running as usual. Therefore, there is not a centralized check in area for search volunteers.
We would like to thank each and every member of the community and people from around the world for reaching out. This tremendously difficult time is made that much easier with all of your love and support. Thank you.
Love Heidi, Shannon, Kim and the TBOC and Marshall Store family"
