Robbinsdale man lost at sea after bodysurfing in Mexico


A Robbinsdale woman is looking for help in the search for her husband after he was pulled underwater off the coast of Mexico and never resurfaced.

KSTP reports Mark Stoneberg was bodysurfing near Puerto Vallarta on Tuesday around 5 p.m. when he disappeared.

Close friends tell KARE 11 that a search wasn't organized until it was almost dark and was called off after just four hours. Authorities presume Stoneberg drowned and his body was lost at sea.

Stoneberg and his wife, Nancy, were on a surfing trip in Sayulita, a small resort town of about 4,000 people.

Nancy Stoneberg tells WCCO that it's possible her husband could have survived being pulled out by a rip current.

She's working with the U.S. Embassy to get more help. FOX 9 reports family and friends are calling for American pressure on Mexican authorities resume the search.
