Coast Guard suspends search for father and son swept out to sea near Cape Blanco

NORTH BEND, Ore. — The Coast Guard suspended its search at 11:51 a.m. Monday, for a 31-year-old father and 3-year-old son from the Eugene area, who were swept out to sea from a Boice Cope County Park beach, 4 miles north of Cape Blanco, Ore., Sunday.
MH-65 Dolphin helicopter crews from Coast Guard Sector North Bend and Coast Guard Air Facility Newport, as well as a 47-foot Motor Life Boat crew from Coast Guard Station Coos Bay searched 112 square miles for over 22 hours, covering 583 total miles in an effort to locate them.
Oregon State Police, Curry County Sheriff’s Office, Sixes River Fire Department and Port Orford Fire Department personnel assisted in the search by scouring the beach on all-terrain vehicles.
The original story mistakenly stated that it was the mans daughter when in fact it was his son who was also missing.
