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.
Bold Earth Founder Abbott Wallis said Monday he understands the Madoffs’ pain but says staff did everything they could.
Tyler was hiking on the west coast of the Big Island with the tour group Wednesday when waves swept him away.
Michael Madoff says he and his wife are back home in White Plains, N.Y., to be with their two other children.
Hawaii County Fire Battalion Chief Reuben Chun says the search will end at sundown Monday if there are no signs of Tyler.
