Coast Guard ends search for man reported missing in Green Bay

9th Coast Guard District News
CLEVELAND — U.S. Coast Guard crews ended their search Saturday evening for the owner of a 12-foot white and blue day sailer that was found capsized Saturday morning after the man’s girlfriend reported him missing Friday.

Coast Guardsmen searched a total of 450 square miles using an MH-65 Dolphin helicopter from Air Station Traverse City, Mich., a Canadian Coast Guard C-130 plane, a 25-foot Response Boat–Small from Station Green Bay, Wisc., and a 41-foot Utility Boat from Station Sturgeon Bay, Wisc.

Also assisting with the search were Brown County Sheriff’s Department marine and land units, Kewaunee County Sheriff’s Department land units and Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources marine units.

The Coast Guard suspends a search and rescue case with extremely great care and deliberation. After a probable search area is saturated several times with a maximum number of assets, resources and crew effort, and persons in distress are still not located, a decision is made to suspend a case.

The Coast Guard can resume a search if credible information is received that persons reported missing may have survived.
