Coast Guard suspends search for missing Salisbury boater

Coast Guard has lost boat linked to missing newlywed mom

The Coast Guard's Merrimack River Station launched a life boat and a Jayhawk helicopter crew to assist.

The suspension comes about 11 hours after two men were reported clinging to an overturned boat.

Boats from the Coast Guard stations at Ocracoke and Hatteras and a helicopter from the Coast Guard station at Elizabeth City are taking part in the search.

Coast Guard crews are searching the waters of Salisbury Beach for a boater who went missing after their vessel capsized in rough seas.

One person was rescued from a nearby jetty and brought to the hospital.

The Coast Guard was aided Tuesday night by the Newburyport Fire Department and harbormaster, as well as the the Salisbury Fire Department and harbormaster.

Coast Guard officials investigated the boat and said they found no evidence it was involved in a crash. But while attempting to rescue him, the boat was struck by an eight- to 10-foot breaking wave and lost sight of the man. The National Weather Service was reporting seas about 7 feet and winds of 14 to 17 miles per hour. The Coast Guard dispatched a 47-foot rescue boat and the Salisbury Fire Department boat also was seen off the north jetty.

The Coast Guard and first responders will continue the search at first light Wednesday morning.
