WWE also issued a statement on Twitter:

"WWE's thoughts are with the family of Shad Gaspard. Please continue to keep them in your thoughts during this difficult time."

Gaspard hasn't been seen since a large wave took him under the water on Sunday, right after he instructed lifeguards to first save his 10 year old son. You can click here for the latest on the search for the 39 year old Gaspard, and you can click here for the latest statement from Shad's wife.
