CAPTAIN COOK, Hawaii (AP) - The parents of a New York teen swept out to sea in Hawaii are criticizing a tour company's handling of the search.
Fifteen-year-old Tyler Madoff's parents say Bold Earth Teen Adventures showed poor judgment and no staff members stayed at the site to search for their son.
Tyler was hiking on the west coast of the Big Island with the tour group Wednesday when waves swept him away.
KHON-TV reports parents Michael and Marianne Madoff, are back home in White Plains, N.Y., to be with their other children after making comments from a Big Island resort.
Bold Earth Founder Abbott Wallis tells Hawaii News Now the Madoffs' pain is inconceivable.
KITV reports the fire department expects to end their search Monday if there are no signs of Tyler.
