Guard: Pilot who went swimming off Guam beach of presumed death

ANDERSEN AIR FORCE BASE, Guam – The Hawaii Air National Guard says a pilot who went missing days ago, during a night dive from a beach at Andersen Air Force Base in Guam is presumed dead.

The guard said in a news release Sunday that search and recovery efforts that began after Master Sgt. Greg Ramos was reported missing around midnight Nov. 21 have produced no signs of him.

The authorities were alerted to a missing swimmer off Tarague Beach. They continued their search until Saturday.

Brig. Gen. Douglas Cox, the 36th Wing commander, said the guard is “very sad” and he offered prayers for the Ramos’ family and friends. He warned that while “the waters off the coast of Guam are beautiful, and inviting,” they can be dangerous.

Tarague, Serena and Scout beaches on the base were closed until further notice.
