Bodies of Missing Surfers Found in Mexico, Tragic End to Surfing Trip

Ensenada, Mexico – Mexican authorities have made a grim discovery in their search for three missing surfers from the United States and Australia. Three bodies, believed to be those of American Jack Carter Rhoad and Australian brothers Jake and Callum Robinson, were found in the state of Baja California.
