Coast Guard suspends search for owner of boat found off Coronado
The Coast Guard has suspended active searching for the owner of a 45-foot fishing vessel discovered abandoned off Coronado.
The Coast Guard on Friday dispatched a cutter and helicopter to search off the Silver Strand after the Navy reporting seeing the vessel about a half-mile offshore.
Lifeguards reached the boat but found it abandoned. The boat is known to have a dinghy, but the dinghy is missing, suggesting that the owner used it to get to shore, officials said Saturday.
