High current day, dense fog, highly advanced dive site, possibly no smb in diver's posession, bad wind and chop day, low underwater vis day, possibly inexperienced diver(s)

- Call the dive -

Diver could have ditched tanks /reg and swam for shore at some point. 1 knot * 4 hours = 4 miles. Add the wind wave current and you might double that speed.

Ask yourself, "How many times have I called a dive?"
