Local divers and search teams have been looking for the Tamworth, New Hampshire resident. The U.S. Embassy and the office of New Hampshire Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter are also assisting in the search.

WBZ-TV spoke with Booska’s brother, Benjamin via Skype about how his family is holding up.

“We’re just hoping that he fell, broke his leg, or got his arm trapped like that guy in 72 Hours. Something like that is kind of what we’re hoping for at this point,” Ben Booska said.

The family has started a GoFundMe page to help pay for the search.
