The latest is that we’ve switched efforts into a search-and- recovery operation here out in Lake Piru for Ms. Rivera. Now, that doesn’t change anything, and the efforts that we’re putting forth to locate her. But that just changes, kind of changes the title in a sense. We’re presuming that an accident happened, and we’re presuming that she drowned in the lake. No sign, there’s no signs of foul play, no signs of anything that went wrong besides a tragic accident. So switching that mode to a search-and-recovery mode, like I said, does not change the efforts and does not change the gusto when we push forward with the search operation. The goal is still to bring Ms. Rivera home to her family so they can have some closure. We had over 50 searchers here, in the water, on the ground with our UAV, that’s the drone team, our helicopters, out looking for Ms. Rivera. Search efforts were physically stopped at 10 o’clock because of dangerous conditions. We’re talking during the day, 8 to 10 inches of visibility in the lake. Lots of debris, full-size trees and debris under the water in varying depths.
