Baton Rouge teenager Cameron Robbins remains missing at sea, prompting speculation about the "shark-infested" waters where he disappeared.

The 18-year-old high school graduate fell overboard during a cruise in the Bahamas, and a video surfaced showing a shadowy object approaching him just moments after he went into the water.

Online sleuths fueled rumors that a shark may have been responsible, as the area near the uninhabited Athol Island is known for its diverse marine life, including dolphins, tiger sharks, and bull sharks, according to experts.

Commodore Raymond King of the Royal Bahamas Defense Force acknowledged the shark-infested nature of the area, further adding to the speculation.

Brian Trascher, spokesperson for the United Cajun Navy, cautioned against drawing conclusions from the video, stating that there was insufficient evidence to determine if Robbins encountered any marine life. Trascher revealed that consultations were underway with professors from the LSU Department of Oceanography and Coastal Sciences to seek their expertise.

The incident occurred during a sunset cruise called Blackbear's Revenge, which Robbins joined along with several hundred students to celebrate their graduation from Baton Rouge's University Laboratory School.

While reports suggested that Robbins jumped overboard as a dare, investigations are ongoing to confirm this detail. The search for Robbins has been hindered by inclement weather conditions on the night he went into the water.

RBDF Commodore King explained that the chances of survival decrease significantly, especially when the person is not wearing a life vest and may be perceived as intoxicated. Despite the challenges, King urged the family not to lose hope.

Robbins, a highly regarded baseball player, had attended the school for over a decade and had a positive impact on his peers and teachers. Kevin George, the director of Lab School, described Robbins as a special and exemplary student with a bright future.

The Coast Guard expressed condolences to Robbins' family and friends when they announced the suspension of the search. The school has organized prayer vigils and made counseling services available to support students and teachers during this difficult time.
