GRAND HAVEN, Mich. (WZZM) - The search continues for two missing boaters. Aaron Juarez and Chris Thode are from West Michigan and went missing more than a week ago on Lake Michigan.
"The worst week of my life, the worst week, it feels like we've been going through this for a month," says Renee Palermo, the sister of Aaron Juarez.
"It's been terrible, but I just hope and pray that everyday gets better and that we have some kind of closure to this awful tragedy in our family," says Victor Juarez, the father of Aaron Juarez.
The Coast Guard ended its search Thursday after covering nearly 4,000 square miles, but the family still wants answers. A new discovery of an unknown object at the bottom of Lake Michigan could bring answers.
"It was found 500 yards from the last ping of Aaron's cell phone," says Palermo.
