SEA COWS BAY, Tortola, VI - Close family, friends and others who knew him gathered at the Sea Cows Bay Methodist Church on June 24, 2017 giving a Christian's thanksgiving service for Carlos D. Titley, a man who went out to sea on November 11, 2016 and has not been seen ever since.

Titley was declared officially missing at sea on November 12, 2016 when the Dutch Coast Guards discovered his boat with the engine still running, off St Croix, US Virgin Islands (USVI) but he was nowhere in sight.

The comprehensive massive search for Titley ended on Tuesday November 15, 2016, according to Coordinator of Virgin Islands Search and Rescue (VISAR) J. Phil Aspinal.

The young man’s disappearance has hit the family hard and they have been unable to get closure.

His sudden separation from his family came just after a few months, July 2016, he had returned to his homeland, the territory of the Virgin Islands, from the UK after completing training in the airline industry. 

As stated in the reflections in the thanksgiving booklet, upon his return, "Acknowledging his ongoing love for the sea, Carlos enrolled at the H. Lavity Stoutt Community College to pursue certification as a boat captain. This new goal would combine his love for sea and his keen customer service skills. The classes were to begin on Monday 13 November 2016."

His whereabouts still remain a mystery and, while his absence deeply saddens his loved ones, they have found hope in the scripture of the holy bible, Romans 14:8, which says, "Whether we live therefore or die, we are the Lord's."
