The search for missing Flagstaff resident Corey Allen has been called off. The Allen family posted a statement on the couple’s GoFundMe page this afternoon saying, “Yesterday a fishing boat came upon Corey’s kayak in open water south and east of Puerto Peñasco. At the end of the day today, eight days after Corey and Yeon-Su were lost, the coordinated volunteer portion of the search should conclude. We have so appreciated all of the volunteers who have given so much. We are aware that these searches incur safety risks, and we want everyone to be safe. Therefore, we understand that ending the coordinated search is the right thing to do, given the likelihood Corey’s body will not be recovered.” The couple went missing after a strong current and high winds drifted Yeon-Su out to sea. Corey took their daughter to the shore and went back out after his wife. They never returned. Yeon-Su’s body was found eight miles off the Mexican coast on Sunday. The couple’s GoFundMe page remains up and donations continue to be accepted. The family says whatever funds from the page are not used for the search, it will go to the couple’s children.
