November 5, 2011 |  2:35 pm

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.
