U.S. Coast Guard: How do coastguards search for and recover bodies of individuals swept out to sea?
US Coast Guard search operations for persons in the water (PIW's) utilize software from a program called SAROP's which takes in historical water current patterns, on scene weather/winds/currents, time of day/illumination level, size of person, what the person is wearing, whether or not the person has a flotation device and the type of aircraft or vessel doing the search. Once on scene a Coast Guard asset can deploy a data marker Bouy which can then be relocated its drift can then be used to better create a search pattern. The amount of time the Coast Guard will search for a PIW depends on the water temperature and what the PIW is wearing. A PIW with a flotation device in the Caribbean might survive a couple of days while a PIW near Alaska with no survival gear will be hypothermic in under an hour. The success of these searches largely depends the accuracy of the time/location of where the person fell off the vessel/washed out to sea. If the original information isn't very accurate then the search plan will be an educated guess. In most cases the Coast Guard doesn't search for bodies. A search action plan will be executed through such a time as it would be reasonable to expect the PIW to still be alive. Also of note a person with a 406 emergency positioning radio beacon (Epirb) will be found very quickly also a person with a strobe light at night or a mirror during the day is very easy to locate if we are in the general vicinity!

Why didn't the Coast Guard continue to get paid during the recent government shutdown like the Army, Navy, Air Force and Marines?
The US Coast Guard is a branch of the military aligned under the Department of Homeland Security (DHS)[1] unless they are transferred to the Department of Defense (DOD)/ US Navy in times of war or contingency[2] . In any scenario other than protracted war, the funding for the Coast Guard will come from the DHS.How did Congress decide to fund the DOD through the end of the fiscal year and not do the same with DHS? Congress passed the Budget Control Act (BCA) of 2011, which reduced federal spending by approximately 30% each year[3] from 2013 to 2016 (it is actually more complicated than that due to additional legislature that adjusted spending caps, but this is the simple explanation). The 115th Congress and President Trump agreed to relieve DoD of its sequestration budget caps, and fund DOD through the end of the fiscal year rather than continue the incremental funding that had been the norm since 2012. Congress and the President did not relieve DHS or any other federal agency of BCA constraints, which technically are the law of the land until 2021.The simple answer is: In 2016, Congress and the President did not open up the pocketbook for the Coast Guard under DHS, but they did so for the other services under DOD.Footnotes[1] 14 U.S. Code § 1 -  Establishment of Coast Guard[2] 14 U.S. Code § 3 -  Department in which the Coast Guard operates[3] United States budget sequestration in 2013 - Wikipedia
