Distinguishing Characteristics Caucasian male. Gray hair, blue eyes. Yerex wears eyeglasses for reading.
He flew a nine-passenger Cessna 402 out of Palm Beach International Airport at 8:05 a.m. the day of his disappearance. He planned to pick up tourists at Marsh Harbor on Abaco Island, then make the fifty-minute return flight.
Yerex's last transmission said he was near a weather balloon over Grand Bahama Island. He was supposed to arrive at Marsh Harbor at 8:50 a.m., but never did. The Coast Guard began searching for him twenty-five minutes later. An extensive search of the ocean turned up no sign of him or the plane, however.
Yerex is a very experienced and capable pilot who had been flying for 35 years by 1987. He has eight children. His disappearance remains unsolved.
